How does electric mobility help reduce the environmental impact?

Electric mobility seeks to overcome two of the greatest environmental problems of our time: climate change and air pollution in large cities.
As we know, climate change has disastrous consequences that endanger the survival of human beings on earth, since it leads to an increase in the occurrence of violent meteorological phenomena, the destruction of livelihoods and economic resources. Thanks to the fact that the “fuel” of these new vehicles is electricity and that, in countries like ours, an important part of it is of renewable origin, with the use of the electric vehicle we manage to reduce the emissions of polluting gases into the atmosphere.

Approximately, taking into account that a vehicle can perform about 15,000km / year on average, replacing it with an electric vehicle would represent a saving of 1,500 kg / CO2 per year.

In addition, it should be noted that electric vehicles are classified as “ZERO EMISSIONS” at the point of consumption, which helps to substantially improve air quality in large cities, reducing air pollution and helping to prevent them every time more frequent episodes of high pollution and their adverse effects on health.
