The EV-PV Proposition - The Poster

For those who appreciate the power of pictures, One Block Off the Grid produced this cool infographic with facts about electric cars and solar energy.

Loaded with facts and presented in an easily scannable format, the poster gives a compelling argument for the EV-PV value proposition.
The poster also includes debunked myths such as the argument that EVs are just as dirty as petrol-powered cars because electricity is often produced by burning coal. (Though if you live in China this may actually be true)

One point of contention around charging: the poster doesn't make it clear that a 30-minute charge time requires a 440-v fast charger, not something you'd have in your house. The 240-v residential quick charger takes 4-6 hours. See more on chargers here.
