How much does it cost to make the energy needed to run an electric car

How much does it cost to make the energy needed to run an average electric car? Including the pollution made to create that energy. It’s for my science fair.

    The cost that it takes to run a single electric car is completely dependent upon the efficiency of the car.  Electric cars have such a varied range of efficiency, it’s difficult to calculate the cost on average.  One piece of advice would be to go to the first citation, and compare all of the vehicles listed.

    Then you’d want to research all of methods for generating electricity, and the pollutants that they produce, since electric cars themselves do not produce any pollutants, it’s all in the electricity.  Here’s a pie chart of 2009’s electric generating methods, so you can use those and compare.
