Stakeholder Press Release: EV batteries are getting cleaner and cleaner: 2-3 times better than 2 years ago
The carbon footprint of the most common type of battery for electric cars is estimated to be 61-106kg of CO2 emissions equivalent per kilowatt hour of battery capacity, according to the latest data compiled and modelled by battery researchers at IVL Sweden. This is 2 to 3 times lower than the 150-200kg of CO2eq estimate measured by the same researchers back in 2017. The 2017 study has been used several times by anti-EV commentators to discredit the climate performance of EVs.
