The actions of policy makers, manufacturers and consumers are already having an impact, avoiding about 1.7 million barrels of oil per day in 2022.
Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt – Adoption of zero-emission vehicles has accelerated over the past year in nearly every market and vehicle segment, according to the report. 2022 Zero Emission Vehicle Factbook Research firm BloombergNEF (BNEF) announced at COP27 in Egypt.
Global momentum towards zero-emission road transport will continue to accelerate in 2022, with electric vehicle sales rising from 6.6 million in 2021 to more than 10 million, according to the ZEV Factbook. Electric in the first half of 2022, he increased from 8.7% for the whole of 2021. Global lithium-ion battery manufacturing capacity will also grow 38% from 2021, he said, and overall global spending on clean road transport is expected to exceed $450 billion this year.

The ZEV Factbook has been produced by BNEF in partnership with the Accelerating to Zero Coalition and in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies for COP27 (2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference).first time Zero Emission Vehicle Fact Book Launched at COP26 in Glasgow, the updated 2022 publication tracks progress towards achieving net-zero emissions globally in the road transport sector.
The adoption of zero-emission vehicles has already reduced oil consumption and carbon emissions. Electric vehicles of all kinds, including cars, buses, motorcycles, scooters, vans and trucks, are expected to reduce their oil use from 1.5 million barrels per day in 2021 to about 1.7 million barrels per day in 2022. expected to avoid. It emits 152 million tonnes of CO2 annually, with the biggest contribution coming from a large fleet of electric two-wheelers and three-wheelers in Asia.
The ZEV Factbook is COP26 President Alok Sharma. “The BNEF Factbook shows that despite the global energy crisis, the transition to zero-emission vehicles has continued to accelerate since COP26 launched the ZEV declaration. But it also emphasizes that is the key to ending our dependence on oil forever,” said Sharma.
But the report also sounds like a wake-up call, as progress on new ZEV initiatives from both automakers and governments has slowed over the past year. The country’s ZEV target and internal combustion engine (ICE) phase-out target cover almost 41% of the global passenger car market by 2035, similar to a year ago. Automakers targeting ICE phase-out by 2035 accounted for 23% of the market, up slightly from 19% a year ago. Including the automaker’s 2040 target increases this to 30%.

Alexandra O’Donovan, lead author of the report and head of BNEF’s electric vehicle research team, said: He pointed out the widening gap in ZEV adoption between wealthy and emerging economies. “While many of the indicators in this report point in the right direction, most countries still have a long way to go before they can be confident they are on track to a net-zero emissions transport sector by mid-century. We have a long way to go,” he said. Odonovan.
The report states that national, regional and local governments must continue to implement motivated, stable and long-term policies to induce growth in zero-emission transport and manage the phase-out of polluting vehicles. I conclude that it does not.
Nigel Topping, United Nations Climate Change High Level Champion for the UK, added COP26: “We have ambitious plans to step forward next year with more stakeholders to transition to zero-emission vehicles, benefit from cleaner air, jobs and economic growth, and continue to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. We call on you to make and implement strong commitments.”
