One study concludes that electric car production has a higher environmental impact than thermal models.

The need for rare earth batteries puts many indigenous populations at risk.

Manufacturers must therefore radically transform the automotive supply chain to make it “fair, sustainable and fossil-free”. An evaluation of the brands on what they communicate was established, with Mercedes getting the best score of 37%.

Tesla, the electric car champion, scored just 14%, while Chinese manufacturers scored almost zero because of the lack of transparency in their environmental and human rights policies.
