Green momentum: electric car surge offers hope amidst SUV emission concerns

Amidst global concerns over SUV emissions, there’s a glimmer of hope as electric car sales surge. In a pivotal shift, electric vehicle purchases skyrocketed by 60% in 2022, surpassing 10 million units. While SUVs contributed to 1 billion tons of CO2, sparking worries akin to large nations’ emissions, the momentum toward sustainable solutions is undeniable.

Notably, one in six SUVs sold were electric, offering a promising trend. As cities like London, Paris, and Berlin become battlegrounds for change, activists from Tyre Extinguishers rally for bans on urban SUVs and amplified investment in greener transport. Progress, fueled by innovation, steers us toward a greener road ahead.
