Electric vehicles now exceed 2 million globally, just 0.2 percent of the more than 1 billion vehicles on highways worldwide. The global electric vehicle (EV) market is on the cusp of exponential growth as it aligns with government mandates to reduce CO2 emissions by replacing combustion engine vehicles with cleaner alternatives.

The report is the first detailed study of the currently-opaque trade in used car imports onto the African continent by De Jong and his team, due to be released by UN Environment later this year.

Study says emissions from increased fleet of exempt vehicles may have offset any reduction from cars

The Germany government says thousands of people die prematurely each year from the harmful effects of nitrogen dioxide, a gas that’s also produced by diesel engines.

The Nordic region is at the forefront of the global growth of electric mobility. The Nordic Electric Vehicle Outlook 2018 (NEVO 2018) aims to identify and discuss recent developments of electric mobility in the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.

A court will decide on Thursday whether German cities can ban heavily polluting cars, potentially wiping hundreds of millions of euros off the value of diesel cars on the country’s roads.

The Balearic islands’ government has launched a pioneering plan to phase out greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, potentially setting itself on a collision course with the Spanish government.

Total emissions from motor vehicles fell 12% from 2012 to 2016, according to the Office for National Statistics.

The origin of the EU vehicle CO2 regulation is by now a well-known story. European car manufacturers promised to voluntarily reduce average CO2 emissions of new cars to 140 g/km by 2008, starting in 1995, when average CO2 emissions were 186 g/km.

This briefing reviews recent research regarding greenhouse gas emissions from the manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles. Analyze this research in the overall context of life-cycle emissions of electric cars as compared to conventional internal combustion vehicles in Europe.
