Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is an urgent priority to solve the ongoing climate change issue. Different sectors across industries take actions to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. The visual content presents targets set by the world’s five biggest car manufacturers for eco-friendly cars.
Road Transport Produces 12% of Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Data show Transport sector accounts for 16.2% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Slicing it down into further categories, Road Transport produces 11.9% of the global emissions, Aviation 1.9%, Shipping 1.7%, Rail 0.4%, and Pipeline 0.3%, respectively. In particular, passenger travel (cars, motorcycles, and buses) is responsible for 60% of the road transport emissions.
Consequently, automotive manufactures are aware of the importance of producing more eco-friendly cars for a green and sustainable future.
Future Plans of Leading Car Brands by 2040
Every model will be either hybrid or electric by 2030.
Producing 1.5 million electric cars by 2025. Ending sales of internal combustion engine vehicles that create more CO2 than electric batteries in Europe between 2033 and 2035.
From 2025, consumers will have the option of purchasing an all-electric alternative for every model the company makes. By 2030 there will be all-electric vehicles only (where market conditions allow).
Ford of Europe has announced that its entire passenger vehicle range, as well as two-thirds of its popular light-commercial vehicle range, will be fully electric by 2030. However, at this stage there are no plans to adopt an electric-only strategy in Ford’s home US market.
40% of sales will be from all-electric by 2030. Carbon neutral by 2040.
Above all, the common goal seems to be transforming the industry to more electric models from petrol models.
