We have spent decades researching how we can make vehicles that are kinder to the environment, producing technologies such as hybrid that have already proved their value in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and helping us move towards a low carbon society. We are still on that journey and we want to reduce our vehicle CO2 emissions by 90% by 2050, compared to the level we were at in 2010.
This will help us ensure widespread take-up of cleaner cars by motorists, to the point where we aim to be putting 5.5 million electrified vehicles on the world’s roads every year by 2025. From 2030, this total will include at least one million vehicles with zero emissions.
It is not just about reducing CO2, however, we share the concerns of governments and consumers around the world about the importance of air quality and continue to invest in finding ways of reducing vehicle emissions that directly impact on people’s health, such as nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulates (PM) within our 360-degree view of design and technology innovation.
