cars more efficient
The “deselect” in 2016, which revealed that Volkswagen AG has used the program codes to the lowering of emissions of nitrogen oxides in their cars, found that the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere much greater than previously thought and has a greater impact on the climate.
It was estimated that in 2017, CO2 emissions from new cars were higher than in 2016, and for the first time since 2010 increased according to annual indicators. A simple explanation was found: diesel cars Volkswagen AG sold in 2016 with low emissions. Continue reading
Charging infrastructure of Ukraine does not keep up with the growth of the number of electric vehicles
The infrastructure for electric vehicles, and primarily charging stations, is developing more slowly than the number of electric vehicles is growing. This applies to all countries where electric cars are an important component of the total traffic, including Ukraine.

It is estimated that there are more than 1.37 billion cars in the world, and this figure is expected to rise to 2 billion by 2040.
There are many innovative ideas on how to deal with emissions from cars: from Hyper-efficient flying cars to hydrogen fuel cells, which as a by-product emit only water, however, this is a distant prospect compared to electric cars and Autonomous cars, which are expected to appear on the roads by 2030.
