Energy efficiency

Electric vehicles are much more energy efficient than fossil fuel vehicles in general. Electric vehicles convert about 59%–62% of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels—conventional gasoline vehicles only convert about 17%–21% of the energy stored in gasoline to power at the wheels (source).  The rest is wasted as heat or put into the air as pollutants. But we still wanted to consider  how much energy is required to power the vehicle.
