Report: Mass adoption of hybrids more effective for cutting CO2

According to a new report from Emissions Analytics, an independent group known for the scientific measurement of real-world emissions, the mass adoption of hybrids is more effective for cutting CO2 emissions and meeting 2030 emissions targets than the mass adoption of battery electric vehicles would be. Green Car Congress breaks down the report’s findings, saying, “of all electrification strategies, full BEVs currently offer the least effective CO2 reduction per kWh of battery size… 21 times worse than mild hybrids and 14 times worse than full hybrids.”

The report points to BEV’s “disproportionately large batteries” as a main driver of the BEV’s less impactful emissions profile. Read more.
