Driving The Future: What Cars (And The Automotive Sector) Will Look Like Moving Forward

A recent study by the ifo Institute has called into question the green credentials of electric vehicles, indicating that over their entire lifecycle certain models may cause more CO2 emissions than a comparable diesel engine. Other studies have been quick to rebuke this, claiming that the extra emissions associated with electric vehicle production are compensated by reduced emissions from driving. Regardless of who is right, the debate highlights that if a move towards electrification is to contribute to global climate goals then energy production must transition towards low carbon solutions.
