Life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of U.S. sedans and SUVs with different powertrains and fuel sources

Building on a previous ICCT study, this work estimates that for sedans and SUVs in the United States, model year 2024 and projected model year 2030 battery electric vehicles have substantially lower life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions than internal combustion engine vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.
