This is article number two in Fergal Mee and his team’s series of articles based around Electric Vehicles. This week we will be focusing on performance comparisons between hybrids/combustion engines.
Electric car manufacturing in China has shown that GHG emissions from production of EVs is about 14.6 tonnes of GHG per vehicle. For the equivalent sized petrol car the GHG emissions are 9.1 tonnes of GHG per vehicle.
When taking well-to-wheel emissions into account, all-electric vehicles emit an average of around 2018 kg of CO2 equivalent each year. By comparison, conventional petrol cars will emit over twice as much annually. Another benefit of electric cars is that they do not emit other air pollutants such as oxides of nitrogen which are a respiratory irritant.
