I visited the electric-car day in Byron last week and was disappointed that I could not find anyone to answer one question: What steps have the manufacturers taken to shield passengers of electric cars from the inevitable electromagnetic fields generated by their motors and electronics?
There are no specifications anywhere to be found relating to EMR (electromagnetic raditation) output from these vehicles.
Are we trading one form of pollution for another? Everyone knows that electric motors produce the largest magnetic fields and these cars have much more powerful motors than your vacuum cleaner.
I was, however, told that these cars are permanently connected to the internet and bathe the occupants with Bluetooth and very likely microwaves/Wi-Fi.
If any one has any facts relating to this I’m sure I’d all love to hear them.
