How the Auto Industry is Driving the Electric Revolution


The auto industry is a crucial piece of the decarbonization puzzle, but there’s a long way to go to achieve a zero-emissions transport system. Transportation accounts for 24% of total carbon emissions, of which road vehicles comprise 70%. Electric vehicles (EVs), accounted for just 4% of passenger car and 1% of commercial vehicle sales worldwide last year, according to the BloombergNEF (BNEF) Electric Vehicle Outlook 2021.
