EVs certainly pollute less and the tailpipe than traditional gasoline powered vehicles.

Ford has plans to offer charging system to go along with its Focus EV that is carbon free and uses green solar power.

The charger would be priced at $13,800, but cost consumers somewhere between $6000 and $10,000 after federal and local incentives. The charger would be able to generate enough electricity each year to drive a Focus EV 12,000 miles yearly even in cloudy areas.
