Hybrids, PHEVs offer best cost to emissions avoidance ratio

A new study in Environmental Science & Technology found that of 2015 and 2025-2030 models, hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles provided the best cost to carbon emissions avoidance ratio, as compared to battery electric and other vehicles. The study, performed by the US DOE in conjunction with automakers and national laboratories, took a full life-cycle approach to the study, evaluating the models from manufacturing to fuel distribution.
