GITEX Showdown Debate: Is E-Mobility a Potential Threat to the Environment?

Future Mobility Conference, Sheikh Maktoum Hall

Is treating electric vehicles as a saviour of the planet wishful thinking? Some claim it will do more harm than good. Capturing the full environmental impact of electric cars requires a complete lifecycle analysis taking all aspects into account: from pollution caused by battery production, to sourcing and recycling rare earth metals, to the conditions where the vehicles will be operating. Are the batteries charged using coal and/or hydrocarbons, and what is their efficiency in extreme climates? This debate addresses the elephant in the room to move beyond green-washing and find answers to how e-mobility delivers on its promise of being the better environmental option.
