Health and Climate Incentives for the Deployment of Cleaner On-Road Vehicle Technologies.
TLDR
By accelerating policies to electrify cars and buses and renew older trucks, governments can save hundreds of lives per year and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
Environmental and Economic Benefits of a Battery Electric Vehicle Powertrain with a Zinc–Air Range Extender in the Transition to Electric Vehicles
Emissions and pollution from the transportation sector due to the consumption of fossil fuels by conventional vehicles have been negatively affecting the global climate and public health. Electric
Techno-Economic Analysis and Environmental Impact of Electric Vehicle
TLDR
The government needs to look into financial incentives such as subsidy and increasing gasoline price to improve the feasibility of EVs in the market, as well as to improve efficiency of the energy generation and transmission to derive the full benefit of EVs.

Life cycle assessment of greenhouse gas emissions from plug-in hybrid vehicles: implications for policy.
TLDR
Life cycle GHG emissions from PHEVs are assessed and it is found that they reduceGHG emissions by 32% compared to conventional vehicles, but have small reductions compared to traditional hybrids.

TLDR
The net result is that primary PM(2.5) environmental health impacts per passenger-km are greater for e-cars than for gasoline cars, lower than for diesel cars, and equal to diesel buses.
Diesel or Petrol ? An environmental comparison hampered by uncertainty
Diesel cars take up a growing share of the passenger car market, and for Belgium this goes up to 55%. In addition to improved diesel technology, diesel has been ‘promoted’ by Belgian fiscal policy
