The Internal combustion engines being used are very popular for production of power in the vehicles. The popularity of internal combustion engine is because of highly energy efficiency, good stability and flexibility to various operations. The internal combustion engine has wide application in agriculture and production of electricity. As the engines are highly popular, they also produce a lot of pollution while working. It is known that, the transport industry has a key role in the country's economy. The transportation sector runs on fossil fuels, which accounts to about 90%. Depleting fossil fuels is a problem, and our future generation will not have any fossil fuels. It is observed that the greenhouse gas emission has grown significantly, because of the use of the fossil fuel-based oils. It was observed that the United States of America emitted 14% of the global greenhouse gases. With concerns about climate and its changes, have made the car manufacturers aware of the need for green vehicles. Green vehicles mean Hybrid electric vehicle and electric vehicles. Many countries have started developing policies in which, they are promoting the hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles. But, with the rise in the electric and hybrid electric vehicles, the impact on the environment has to be evaluated. As the hybrid electric vehicles are majorly dependent on the power grid, power grid is majorly fossil fuel based. The effect on GHG emission has to be reviewed.
