Abstract: In the light of ever-increasing greenhouse gases, global energy use, the increasing cost of energy services, concerns over energy supply security, climate change and local air pollution, this report centers around the question of how CO2 emission can be reduced in long term. As transport system plays a major role in the increased greenhouse gases, this report highlights the use of future vehicles in the transport sector from an economic, technical and environmental point of view. Through its multi-disciplinary approach the report provides a knowledge base concerning different strategies made by government and recent advancements in automobile sector in order to reduce carbon emission.

Introduction: Low carbon fuel standards are rapidly becoming an part of the national debate over how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Transport system plays a vital role in the increased greenhouse gases. Increase in number of vehicles has increased the carbon emission rapidly. A pie chart gives you the information about the total amount of CO2 emission by different sector in 2010. Electricity, heat generation and transport system are the three major systems accounted for 63% of total CO2 emission during the year 2010 (I E A Statistics, 2012). The potential for increased levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere cost of fossil fuels and high demand for non-renewable fossil fuels has brought attention to CO2 emission reduction strategies. Government has set some policy context and emissions standards for the
