Electric vehicles to fight against global warming

Electric vehicles to fight against global warming
Global warming is a reality. It is caused by  an excess of CO2 in the atmosphere, acting as a blanket, trapping the heat and warming the planet.  As a global automotive manufacturing group, we cannot ignore our industry’s role in this phenomenon. Passenger cars alone contribute 15% of all greenhouse gases emitted globally.
