Go Green Go Electric
The major benefit of electric cars is the contribution that they can make towards improving air quality in towns and cities. With no tailpipe, pure electric cars produce no carbon dioxide emissions when driving. This reduces air pollution considerably.
Electric cars give us cleaner streets making our towns and cities a better place to be for pedestrians and cyclists. In over a year, just one electric car on the roads can save an average 1.5 million grams of CO2.
More than a third of the lifetime CO2 emissions from an electric car come from the energy used to make the car itself. As technology advances, this is changing for the better.
At the COP26 meet in Glasgow, India set a target to cut its net carbon emissions to zero by 2070.
For India to realize its emissions commitment, industry will need to step up. It appears that companies are taking the lead.
