Zero Emission vs Zero Impact

An EV, specifically a Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV), not a hybrid, has no exhaust. A 100% electric powerplant produces no emissions. Voila, a zero emission vehicle, but not a vehicle with zero impact on the environment.

Volvo Cars, planning to be fully electric by 2030, produces both ICE and BEV versions of the same model, the XC40 SUV. Volvo Cars released a detailed report comparing the carbon footprint of both versions. The carbon footprint parameters include all emissions related to the manufacture and operation of the vehicle through to 200,000 km.
