In British Columbia where I live over 90% is non-GHG generated.

But even where electricity is produced using GHG fuels, a BEV is substantially better for global warming purposes.

Under current conditions, driving an electric car is better for the climate than conventional petrol cars in 95% of the world, the study finds.

In Oregon for example, driving a Tesla Model 3 produces 80 gms of carbon per mile (including “upstream emissions, i.e., electric power generation). The same car would produce 110 gms per mile as the US average. The Average New Gasoline Vehicle's Total Emissions is a whopping 410 gms per mile.
