SUVs accounted for 48% of global car sales in 2023 and they were also responsible for over 20% growth in global energy-related CO2 emissions last year, according to the International Energy Agency.

This stat had a strong wow effect on me. Let it sync in: If SUVs were a country, they would be the world’s fifth largest emitter of CO2.
