The video evaluates the contribution of CO2 emissions and energy consumption from fossil fuel-powered cars, electric vehicles, and hybrid vehicles. It also spotlights their entire life cycle and emissions from the value chain. Although EVs consume more energy from the production phase, they are eco-friendly in terms of usage over the life of the vehicle. This resource is insightful and recommended for teaching.
