Electric vehicles

Road transport in Greater Manchester is responsible for almost two-thirds of the emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), one of the most harmful pollutants, and the region is in breach of its legal limits for nitrogen dioxide.

Pure electric cars have no tailpipe emissions; in fact, they don’t even have an exhaust.

Even when taking into account the impact of generating the electricity, pure electric vehicles still produce substantially lower greenhouse gases than petrol or diesel cars.

Plug-in hybrids also have significantly lower average emissions than traditional petrol or diesel cars.

The switch to ultra-low emission vehicles will help improve air quality, particularly in urban areas and at the roadside where air quality can be worst.
