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.
