Cars will be greener than trains by 2020: report

A leading UK engineer says the greenest cars on the market by 2020 will emit fewer harmful emissions per passenger than electric trains.

Autocar reports Richard Parry-Jones told a transportation conference in London that current industry targets put hybrid and plug-in cars on track to outperform the cleanest trains in the UK’s high-speed fleet.

The industry has its sights set on lowering vehicle tailpipe emissions to 40g/km CO2 by the end of the decade – a level that translates to fuel consumption of approximately 1.7 litres of petrol per 100km, or 1.5L/100km of diesel.

That level effectively drops to 25g/km per passenger when the average number of occupants per car (1.6) is taken into account.
