Although widely cited as the best alternative to combustion cars, electric cars are not perfect and there are processes that call into question their effective reliability in their life cycle. In this regard, a new report reveals that emissions during the life cycle of an electric vehicle will be reduced by 10% in the UK.
This reduction will take place until 2030.
In the UK, emissions from the life cycle of the electric car will decline over the next decade, according to a new report. This is triggered by the production changes that need to be implemented and the greater environmental power grid.
Because it mixes relatively clean electricity, an electric car in the UK is estimated to emit 65% less greenhouse gas emissions than a petrol car.
A report by Ricardo, a global strategic engineering and environmental consulting firm, estimates that by 2030, electric vehicles will emit 76% less emissions into their entire life cycle in the UK. This margin will be driven by the improvement of technology associated with batteries, the production of components and its treatment at the end of its life. All of these, along with the decarbonized electrical grid.
We are all aware of the functional environmental benefits of driving an electric vehicle, but this study further confirms that these benefits are significant when considering the full life of a vehicle in the UK from production to the end of life.
he said Nicholas HillCo-Director of Ricardo.
By 2030, if the percentage is already very interesting, if the time horizon of 2050 is defined, it will be even higher. After all, the report says this value could increase by 81% compared to cars running on fossil fuels.
It is interesting to see the government's transformation into fuel for the power revolution backed by this pioneering analysis.
We have already pledged to support the release of electric vehicles across the UK for 2.5bn, clean our air, increase green jobs in our cities and villages, and improve driver's comfort.
This was stated by the Member of Parliament for England, Trudeau Harrison.
The results of the study are compiled a Report Produced by Ricardo for the Department of Transportation.
