Are electric vehicles better for the planet?

Sascha has just turned 17 and recently had to choose her first car. But being both an environmentalist, and a motorsports fan on a budget, was harder than she thought.

In this episode of Podcast Next Gen, Sascha looks into the sustainability of electric cars.

She wants to know whether they’re better for the planet from the start to the end of their life, plus she tells us why her parents might need supervision when driving a Tesla.
