Of course that the electric

Of course that the electric cars have only benefits for the environment. But until a mass production should be possible, the electric cars manufacturers must think also about the efficiency. Yes, these buses are just fine in using solar energy but the question is what is the capacity of stocking this energy? You need a lot of energy to have on disposal in order for a big engine to work on normal parameters. And you do not control the sun all the time, like on cloudy days, on nights and so on.
