The article presents a study on indirect environment-related effects of electric car vehicles use. Although electric vehicles are considered zero emission vehicles, their use may be linked to indirect pollution of environment caused by energy sources used for electricity production and also other sources of pollution such as poor recycling procedures. A computer simulation was performed to determine the energy consumption of electric vehicles available on the Romanian car market. The values…
