Life Cycle Air Emission External Cost Assessment for comparing Electric and traditional passenger cars

Lo studio confronta i costi esterni da emissioni atmosferiche di un veicolo elettrico benzina e diesel per trasporto privato (vW Golf), partendo da una LCA dettagliata e in funzione di area geografica, altezza e anno di emissione nonché della densità abitativa dell’area di emissione.

The study compares the externalalities of electric, gasoline and diesel motorisations of average passenger cars (as VW Golf) giving a complementary reading of the results of an LCA. Starting from the results of the NEEDS project, authors present a methodolgy taking into account: the year of emission; the geographical area where the pollutant emissions take place; the height of release; the population density of the area where the emission take place; the average level of income of the country in which the emission take place. A complete LCA of an electric, gasoline and petrol VW Golf has been carried out considering city cycle real consumptions from EPA and real emissions from national inventory on transport air emission factors.

Emissions of PM10, PM2.5, NOx, SOx, NH3 NMVOC, CO2eq have been taken into account for externalities evaluation. The damage factor of PM2.5 have been differentiated to take into account the different population density of urban, suburban and rural areas. Moreover, damage factors take into account the real per capita income growth rate and the per capita GDP of considered countries.

The external costs evaluation for the analysed vehicles shows that Electric Golf performes better in terms of external costs, mainly thanks to the minor costs due to Climate Change. As regard regional externalities, the external costs due to emissions in Italy make the electric vehicle even more competitve than considering the overall regional externalities.
