Britain is falling behind in the global shift to electric vehicles (EVs). If the government wants to, as it says, “cement the UK’s position as a world leader in the low emission and electric vehicle industry”, its forthcoming ‘Road to zero’ strategy is a prime opportunity to shift gear.

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.

NAIROBI, March 14 (Xinhua) -- A senior UN official on Wednesday called on African governments to put policies and finances in place to start adopting electric vehicles to cut air pollution.

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Centre to file an affidavit on a plea on the issue of air pollution and questioned the subsidy on diesel and imposition of 150 per cent import duty

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.

This briefing provides a brief overview of the energy cost per mile for a vehicle using gasoline versus the energy cost per mile using electricity in the United States. It highlights the imperative to consider electricity costs for electric vehicles in the context of all competing gasoline alternatives including gasoline hybrids.

This report examines the major trends affecting the transformation of energy and mobility systems, with a special focus on cities. Topics addressed include: electrification, decentralization and digitalization of the energy system, along with the shift towards electric, shared and autonomous mobility.

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.

This report assesses the economic costs and benefits of decarbonising passenger cars in Europe. A scenario approach has been developed to envisage various possible vehicle technology futures, and then economic modelling has been applied to assess impacts. The study follows a similar approach to that of the 2013 Fuelling Europe’s Future report.

We previously wrote about an interesting project called the Lightyear One, a fully solar-powered electric car.
