Well, we are not unknown of the demand for Tesla and some of the other e-car models. But is it fast enough for a complete switch to e-mobility to combat the CO2 targets? Or it is too slow for the transition process and yet it is unaware of us.

According to Greenpeace environmental organization study, the auto industry will manufacture 400 million petrol and diesel engines too many by the time combustion engines are phased out to maintain global warming limits.

The theoretical number of combustion cars was 315 million whereas, in reality, the number is around 712 million hitting the streets in the coming years.

According to Greenpeace calculations, to comply with the existing CO2 emissions budget up to 2050, no more combustion engines should come onto the streets. However, the industry is planning for a much longer period with petrol and diesel engines. 

According to the study, Toyota will exceed its new car budget the most, by 164 percent or 63 million vehicles. Hyundai-Kia is 142 percent above budget and Volkswagen is 118 percent. General Motors is relatively moderate with 57 percent. Volkswagen, for example, still wants to sell such cars in 2040. 

As per the study by Autohaus, the clear data and facts show a slow transition to e-mobility. May be way slower than any of us can expect. The dilemma of using e-fuels or synthetic fuels is also another rising unknown factor for the auto industry.

The factual data of the real-world scenario shows the real problems that completely differ from what we thought is possible in our theoretical studies. The timelines or the futuristic way of transportation do cost us more than we can predict. Isn’t it?
