The effect of electrified vehicles (EVs) on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is subject to debate. Many studies assess EV's per-mile emissions based on the current carbon content of electricity. We use a simulation model to generate contrasting scenarios of the carbon content of European electricity. We find that if Europe chooses to implement climate policies in order to significantly reduce its GHG emissions, the carbon content of electricity will decrease rapidly. EV's per-mile emissions would then remain lower than those from conventional vehicles. On the long run, the same result seems to apply in every region of the world.
