Vehicle and efficiency electrification: a global status report

GFEI’s new Global Status Report calls for ambitious policies for a rapid transition to electric vehicles to achieve the Paris Climate Agreement. Launched at En Route to COP26, marking a year before the Glasgow climate negotiations, the report sets out the current state of global policies to promote efficient and electric vehicles globally. It highlights the urgent actions government need to take to accelerate the decarbonisation of road transport, which include: Set long-term policy frameworks to reduce CO2 and increase EV sales in combination with wider decarbonisation and efficiency policies.; Eliminate remaining fossil fuels subsidies; End sales of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles as soon as possible.; Combine policies to increase sales of EVs with a focus on decarbonising the electricity sector and integrating energy and charging infrastructure.
