An electric car could need to be driven 50,000 miles before its carbon footprint is better than a petrol model because of the CO2 involved in its manufacture, a new report has said. The report, commissioned by several car manufacturers, says the Polestar 2 electric car produces 24 tonnes of CO2 to make, compared to 14 tonnes in the Volvo XC40. When used on a European electricity mix, it is estimated that it would take 48,000 miles before the carbon footprints of the two cars are equal.
