The world is transitioning to electro-mobility. As electric vehicles increasingly become part of our daily lives, enthusiasm for more sustainable transportation is growing worldwide.
Yet some people still have doubts, often driven by misconceptions and unsubstantiated claims. To separate the fact from the fiction, we debunk some common EV myths.
Stay tuned here for new myths!
The ecological footprint of an electric car is as bad as that of an internal combustion car
The total footprint of an e-car is smaller than an internal combustion engine vehicle today and will get even better.
To make a fair comparison, it’s important to look at the full life cycle of a car. The ecological footprint depends on both the production process and the emissions during use.
Over the vehicle life cycle, electric mobility plus increasing green electricity will deliver a lower overall CO2 footprint than internal combustion engine vehicles. Electric cars in the EU already emit almost 60% less CO2 on average today.
