Report finds electric vehicles are lifecycle and circular economy winners
A new study from the European Environment Agency (EEA) supports the Danish Climate Council life cycle report that the battery electric vehicle (BEV) stands out as a clear winner on a comparison of total vehicle lifetime emissions of different vehicle types. The report “Electric vehicles from life cycle and circular economy perspectives” brings together the most recent data to create a complete assessment of the cradle-to-grave resource use.
The key objectives of the new report were to compile existing evidence on the environmental impact of BEVs across the life cycle stages and compare its life cycle impact with other vehicle from the perspective of a circular economy.
