核心提示:SUV的年排放量超过7亿吨二氧化碳。如果把所有SUV驾驶人视为一个国家,他们会是世界第七大碳排放国。

参考消息网4月19日报道 Drivers in crowded cities should think twice before buying a big SUV, says the head of a motoring organisation.

Steve Gooding, from the RAC Foundation, said: “We should all choose the right vehicle for the right trip to cut the size of our carbon footprint.”

His comments come as research confirms most SUVs are bought by urban drivers.

It shows that large SUVs - often known as Chelsea tractors - are indeed most prevalent in places such as Chelsea.

They are typically defined by their extreme size, and off-road features such as high ground clearance and four wheel drive.

They often face complaints from other road users about their bulk and their pollution - especially during the school run.

The report from the think-tank New Weather Institute said: “The numbers stand up long-held suspicions that these vehicles ostensibly designed for off-road are actually marketed successfully to urban users where their big size and higher pollution levels are a worse problem.”

Andrew Simms, from the New Weather Institute, said: “Just as tobacco advertising was successfully ended, it's time to stop promoting polluting SUV's.”

一个机动车组织的负责人说,拥挤城市中的驾驶人在购买大型SUV之前应该三思。
