The ultimate contributing factor to the carbon emissions resulting from cars is the type of car. While we’re not in a position to buy a new car every day, every day is a great time to think about what you will choose when that time comes.

Hybrid and pure electric vehicles are increasingly available and affordable. It’s no longer a choice between a stylish gas-powered car and a nerdy hybrid; you can have both style and a low carbon impact.

As we navigate physical social distancing and travel restrictions, these COVID-19 times offer an opportunity to reflect on our daily habits and behaviours that are often made on auto-pilot. We have the choice to shift our thinking, train in resilience, and zoom out for a broader post-COVID19 perspective, and to plan ahead for our new daily routines that become the new normal.

A hybrid electric vehicle, or a plug-in hybrid, could save how much CO2 emissions annually?

  1. 160 kg
  2. 3,000 kg
  3. 1.6 tonnes
  4. 5 tonnes
