Appello congiunto di 27 grandi aziende alla UE: “Dal 2035 permettere la vendita solo di auto elettriche”

Tutte insieme hanno un fatturato che sfiora il PIL della Danimarca e danno lavoro a tante persone quanti sono gli abitanti di Torino. 27 grandi aziende europee – tra loro, nomi del calibro di Coca-Cola European Partners, IKEA Retail, SKY, Uber, Volvo alle quali si aggiungono le italiane Enel X e Novamont – e 6 associazioni dei comparti automotive, energia, sanità e finanza hanno sottoscritto un appello congiunto rivolto alle istituzioni comunitarie e ai governi degli Stati membri dell'Unione Europea. Molto preciso l'obiettivo: arrivare a dichiarare il divieto di vendita di auto alimentate da motori a combustione interna (diesel, benzina e persino ibride) non più tardi del 2035.

Mit E-Fuels auf dem Holzweg – Berlin und Brüssel dürfen bei LKW nicht aufs falsche Pferd setzen

Nach jahrelangem und schwerfälligem Streit um die Kraftstoffeffizienznormen scheint Daimler, der weltgrößte Lkw-Hersteller, in neue Dimensionen vorzustoßen. Letzten Monat verkündete das Unternehmen, ab 2039 nur noch CO2-neutrale Lkw und Busse fertigen zu wollen. Laut Daimler kann dies nur mit Batterien und Wasserstoff erreicht werden. Diese Ankündigung muss in einer Branche, die noch vor kurzem vor allem Biokraftstoffe und Erdgas-Fahrzeuge als saubere Alternativen betrachtete, als erheblicher Schritt angesehen werden.

Electric fleets can fuel decarbonisation efforts. Here’s how

First published in World Economic ForumBy Saul Lopez, eMobility Manager at T&E; Maya Ben Dror, Project Lead, Future of Mobility at the Centre for the Fourth Industrial Revolution of the World Economic Forum; Mary Loane Project Lead, Future of Mobility at the World Economic ForumWithout drastic action, emissions from mobility are on track to double by 2050 - making climate change irreversible and leading to a global misery greater than the pandemic. During the pandemic, a growing number of cities announced their plans to forge multi-modal sustainable urban mobility ecosystem, with public transport and active travel as a critical city-supported backbone, as well as electrification. To accomplish this goal, electrifying fleets provide a unique opportunity to scale change.

Why Uber should go electric

This paper shows that electrifying ride hailing services’ will not only lead to substantial CO2 savings, but also means better economics for drivers across most vehicle segments in the five EU cities analysed1. Looking at costs over the whole use time of the vehicle for a typical ride-hailing driver (so-called total costs of ownership - TCO), the overall result is clear: medium BEVs2 are on average 14% cheaper to run than equivalent diesel, and up to 24% cheaper in Paris. Medium-size to large electric cars are the best option for drivers with access to home or depot charging in 12 out of 15 scenarios considered.

Sharing is caring. So why are European cities falling behind?

New mobility services like Uber and Lyft offer the potential to get cities moving, improve quality of life and reduce emissions. But this will only happen if new and traditional mobility services can be integrated to make a more attractive offering that finally persuades drivers out of their cars, write Greg Archer and Yoann Le Petit.

Urban Transport

In addition to electric cars, vehicle automation and app-based sharing services such as car, ride or bike and scooter sharing will disrupt mobility as we know it
