Clean and energy-efficient vehicles

Subscribe to RSS - Clean and energy-efficient vehicles

Clean and energy-efficient vehicles, such as hybrid/electric buses and cars, aim to reduce greenhouse and other pollutant emissions, fuel consumption and fossil fuel dependency.

Exhaust gas treatment systems, alternative drive trains and the use of alternative fuels and energy storage systems can improve the environmental record of vehicles. Besides technical interventions, promotional and procurement initiatives can accelerate the uptake of low-emission vehicles.
