So, according to this study, the Tesla is not only the overall better environmental option than the RAV4, but is also more cost-effective. Presumably, this comparison would be even more favorable for the Tesla if the other car was larger and heavier than a RAV4. The study also goes on to examine what would happen in four different scenarios in terms of the speed in which that transition occurs for all cars currently on U.S. roads ("more than 280 million light-duty vehicles"). Perhaps not surprisingly, the most effective results come when multiple complementary policy changes are made with the common goal of reducing our carbon footprint:
"No matter what kind of engines they run on, cars add to greenhouse gas emissions. But the data show that switching from gas to electric vehicles will make a huge impact. Consumers making individual choices between cars will make a difference. So will policy decisions made by governments and investments by companies as we drive into the future."
