Do electric cars emit any type of smell?
I know electric cars don’t have exhaust pipes and thus don’t emit that foul exhaust smell that you get with gas-powered cars, but do electric cars emit any kind of smell?
Answer provided by
You shouldn’t notice any kind of smell coming from your electric car other than “new car smell”!
Your standard combustion engine car typically smells of gasoline and burning exhaust, something you won’t ever have to worry about from an electric car. Interestingly enough, Ford did survey drivers to ask if they would miss the smell of gasoline when transitioning to electric, and 20% of people said they would.
