Editor’s note: Today marks the start of an ongoing series titled “Car Wars.”

In an effort to fight air pollution and climate change, local governments, transportation planners and environmental groups have for years asked residents to consider ditching their personal vehicles in favor of alternative modes of transportation such as biking, walking and public transit (buses, trolleys and trains).

We asked readers to submit their burning questions concerning what’s often glibly referred to as “the war on cars.” More than 100 of you have responded, all with thoughtful inquiries on everything from highway-management practices to the economic costs and benefits of embracing more public transit.

A good number of you wanted to know more about electric vehicles. The following are answers to many of your questions.
