This is a very honest admission, seen at yesterday's FR2 newscast, from a mitsubishi official about their next electric car, the Mistsubishi. Extract to see here: https://www.econologie.com/voiture-elect ... -3944.html
Taking into account the manufacturing batteries, we arrive at an emission equivalent of 41 g CO2 per km
You read correctly: it does not speak, a priori except error of translation of the journalist, that of the manufacture of the battery and therefore it is necessary to add the electric production!
And taking electricity generation so?
It takes about 0.2 kWh / km (low estimate) to advance a small vehicle in town.
In France, the average is 90 g / kWh so 18 grams must be added to these 41 g or 59 g / CO2. So good! (thank you nuclear ...)
On the other hand, in Germany it is the catastrophe since the average is 600 g / kWh is in the end 161 g / CO2 (equivalent of a hdi consuming 6.2 L / 100)
Average of Europe 15: 0,46 CO2 kg / kWh elec.

On the other hand, "fortunately" (for the electric car) that there is not ONLY CO2 CRITERION to take into account!
But talking about Zero Emission is, in any case, a lie! But this is the name we dared to give the ingested from renault to their last protopipo!

ps: apparently there would be a partnership between PSA and Mistubishi
