Of science, engineering and Planet-popular sport utility vehicles (SUV’s) between 2010 and 2018 and the second most important cause of the increase in CO2 emissions in the world. It reports to the executive director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) today.

“ok, the car manufacturers pumping a lot of money into electric cars, but those same companies are also becoming more and more SUV’s on the market, a car with the looks of a 4×4 but without the terreinwagencapaciteiten”, according to Fatih Birol in Paris, at an international conference on the power of the energy.

This is the result, according to Birol, that the sport utility vehicles (SUV’s over the last ten years, and the second most important reason for the growth in CO2 emissions after the energy sector, but for the heavy-duty industry (steel, cement,…), heavy goods vehicles, or aircraft.

Today, there are 200-million sport utility vehicles in the world, compared to 35 million in 2010. And that trend is everywhere. Because the SUV is heavier and less aerodynamic it is, which consumes around a quarter more than that of an average passenger car.
