The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), a local GFEI partner based in India, has released new analysis reviewing the country’s fuel efficiency standards. It concludes that while India has taken giant strides in introducing emission standards for reducing toxic emissions from vehicles with the adoption of Bharat Stage VI standards in 2020, it has not taken equally strident and strong measures to improve fuel efficiency and carbon footprints of vehicles.

ICCT paper for ZEV Transition Council shows EVs have lowest emissions

Main Image

GFEI partner the ICCT has conducted a wide-ranging new life-cycle assessment (LCA) of the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from a variety of passenger car powertrains and fuels. This analysis is the basis of a new briefing for the ZEV Transition Council, an international forum focused on enhancing political cooperation on the transition to zero emission vehicles (ZEVs), which includes ministers from over 50% of the global car market. The analysis shows that only full battery electric vehicles (EVs) and hydrogen fuel-cell EVs have the potential to be very low-GHG pathways, leaving the briefing to conclude that there is no realistic pathway to full decarbonization of internal combustion engine vehicles.
