IEA Unveils Online Tool for Comparing ICE Vehicle Lifetime Emissions to EVs

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has launched an online tool to compare lifetime emissions of different vehicles. The interactive tool will allow users to compare the greenhouse-gas emissions of internal combustion engine (ICE) cars, battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) over their entire lifetimes.

With this calculator, users will be able to measure greenhouse-gas emissions from the extraction and processing of raw materials to vehicle production, as well as use by customers, granting them an estimate of the direct and indirect emissions created by producing and using different types of cars. It is one of the only tools capable of providing this service and will help environmentally conscious drivers make more informed decisions when they purchase a vehicle.

According to an analysis by the International Energy Agency (IEA), current vehicle emission policies will ensure that nearly one in every six vehicles is electric by the end of the decade, resulting in significant greenhouse-gas emissions. Most developed countries have pledged to phase out ICE cars in favor of zero-emission electric cars as part of wider efforts to cut their emissions.

The IEA analysis revealed that if nations fulfill their electrification pledges on time and in full, electric vehicle uptake would surge to even greater heights. As the transportation sector is responsible for roughly 30% of the world’s emissions, a surge in EV uptake would have a major impact on carbon emissions and bring the world one step closer to carbon neutrality. In the meantime, the IEA’s new tool will be instrumental in providing insights for customers interested in lifetime emissions as well as policymakers responsible for furthering electric-vehicle adoption.

Drivers can choose variables such as powertrain type and vehicle size as well as average fuel economy and measure how these variables can affect a vehicle’s lifetime emissions. The online app will also account for variables such as the typical usage of an infrequent driver vs. a city commuter that explore how different types of drivers affect the lifetime emissions of different types of vehicles. The app will evaluate a variety of other factors as well that can impact emissions in conventional vehicles as well as electrified ones.

In addition, the EV Life Cycle Assessment Calculator can let users set and adjust energy-supply assumptions such as emissions produced by electricity production in the case of battery electric vehicles and biofuel blending levels for ICE cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles coupled with the current and future associated emissions.

With this online tool now available, consumers can check how the EV models from different manufacturers such as Mullen Automotive Inc. (NASDAQ: MULN) compare with similar-sized ICE vehicles or models from other electric vehicle makers. This information can help buyers make informed decisions regarding which cars are the most ecofriendly in terms of lifetime emissions.
