The growth of the global market in zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) is outpacing expectations, and some estimates project that they will make up over 50% of all new car sales by 2040. In other words, we need to double the pace of the global transition to zero emission vehicles.

Rising faster than in any other sector, road transport accounts for over 10% of global emissions, as well as causing high levels of local air pollution.
