This is one of the paradoxes of greening: if electric vehicles do not emit CO2, their production is energy-intensive. A challenge that the sector will have to meet. In France, vehicle use, production and fuels were releasing 92 million tonnes of CO2 per year in 2019. It will take 55.7 million tonnes per year in 2030 for the France to meet the greenhouse gas reduction trajectory set by the European Union. That's a 55% drop in emissions in 2030 compared to its 1990 level.
This reduction will involve an increase in the volume of electric vehicles on the road. Today, their share on the roads remains low: no more than 1.5% of the 40 million passenger vehicles in circulation. The government's goal is to reach 15% of the vehicle fleet by 2030. To achieve this, the share of electrified vehicles (including hybrids and plug-in hybrids) among new vehicle sales will...
