Around 1,400 lives could be saved and approximately 2,000 cases of lung cancer could be avoided between now and 2030 if the transition to e-mobility continues, says Enel Foundation deputy director.
According to João Duarte, e-mobility is a sound strategy to reduce emissions and pollutants.
Research conducted with the European Climate Foundation looks at the socio-economic and environmental benefits of transitioning to electric mobility, elaborating on how many lives could be saved through this change.
The transition is therefore about more than economics however, many people are choosing the electric car over traditional vehicles, seeing early adopters taking advantage of incentives and lower running costs.
As acquisition costs decrease, so an increase in adoption will be noted.
E-mobility is fun, engaging and good for the health of cities and citizens alike according to the Enel Foundation.

Enel Foundation is the Global Knowledge Partner of European Utility Week (EUW), built around the idea of sharing knowledge.
The collaboration allows for the collection of all conversation outputs, prepared in a scientific format, to be shared with the academic fraternity. Ultimately this will reduce the gap that exists between the academic agenda and the business agenda.
The Enel Foundation is an independent, non-profit, research-based organisation funded by the Enel Group. They are committed to supporting the transition to a clean energy future through research, education and knowledge partnerships.
