True, but I was under the impression that there's still a significant increase in overall efficiency. I found this on Wikipedia:

An EV recharged from the existing US grid electricity emits about 115 grams of CO2 per kilometer driven (6.5 oz(CO2)/mi), whereas a conventional US market gasoline powered car emits 250 g(CO2)/km (14 oz(CO2)/mi).[14]
In countries like Canada that have a large hydroelectricity infrastructure, it's even better.
