Why Electric vehicles and not fuel running automobiles?

Here are some other explained reasons, that what a fuel running automobile does to the environment and the emissions which is lethal.

Nitrogen oxides (NOx) are produced when nitrogen in the air reacts with oxygen as well as oxygen Nitrogen is an inert gas in theory. The high temperatures and pressures in engines, on the other hand, promote the formation of nitrogen oxides. By far the most crucial factor is temperature a factor in the production of nitrogen oxides. The most prevalent nitrogen source. Although minor amounts of nitrogen dioxide are present, the most common oxide is nitric oxide (NO). There are additional amounts of nitrous oxide (N2O) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2). Once released into the wild, NO2 is formed when NO combines with oxygen in the environment. The Sun's UV radiation decomposes this into NO and extremely reactive oxygen atoms, which assault the membranes of living cells. Smog is caused in part by nitrogen dioxide, which has a brownish tint that makes it visible. It also forms nitric acid (HNO3) when it combines with atmospheric water, which is diluted by rain. This occurrence is known as "acid rain," and it is to blame for the deforestation of forests in developed countries.1 Acid rain also adds to the deterioration of marble ancient structures.

Incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons results in unburned hydrocarbons. Unburned hydrocarbons can be toxic to living things depending on their nature. Some of these unburned hydrocarbons, such as nanoparticles, benzene, and others, may be direct poisons or carcinogenic substances. Smog is also caused by unburned hydrocarbons: the Sun's UV rays mix with unburned hydrocarbons and NO in the atmosphere to produce ozone and other compounds. The molecule ozone is made up of three oxygen atoms. It is colorless but extremely hazardous, poisoning live cells by attacking their membranes, causing them to age prematurely or die. High ozone concentrations are particularly harmful to toddlers, the elderly, and asthmatic people. Deaths from high ozone maxima in polluted cities are documented on a yearly basis.

Pollutants are released because of impurities in fuels. Sulfur is the most common contaminant, which can be found in diesel, jet fuel, gasoline, and natural gas. Sulfur oxides are produced when Sulphur (or sulphur compounds such as hydrogen sulphide) is burned with oxygen (SOx). The main result of this combustion is sulphur dioxide (SO2). It produces sulphur trioxide when it comes into contact with air, which then combines with water to produce sulfuric acid, a key component of acid rain. Sulfur oxide emissions come mostly from the combustion of coal in power plants and steel mills, but they also come from transportation sources. Furthermore, there is disagreement about the precise contribution of natural sources such as volcanoes.

Chemical compounds are added to gasoline by oil corporations to boost engine performance or extend engine life. Tetraethyl lead, also known as "lead," was used to improve the knock resistance of gasoline and, as a result, improve engine performance.

The presence of carbon dioxide and other gases in the atmosphere, such as methane, causes the "greenhouse effect," which causes global warming. These gases trap the infrared radiation reflected by the earth, retaining the energy, and raising the temperature in the atmosphere. Elevated Earth temperature causes substantial biological damage to ecosystems as well as a slew of natural disasters that wreak havoc on human populations. The combustion of hydrocarbons and coal produces carbon dioxide.

Transportation emits a significant amount of carbon dioxide (32 percent from 1980 to 1999). The distribution of carbon dioxide emissions is shown below:

Carbon dioxide emission distribution from 1980 to 1999.

All the above reasons dignify the importance of Electric Vehicles which is based on lithium-ion battery system which has a lifetime of ten years.
