That question was raised this week when the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) asked BMW to pull advertisements that claim its i3 electric car, the version with the small range-extending gasoline engine, is “a clean car and helps to give back to the environment.” The ASA’s position is that even vehicles that rely mostly on batteries for power—and only use gasoline to supplement electric energy—cannot make a claim for zero emissions.
