In this paper we present a comparison, based on pollutant emissions and fuel consumptions, of two alternative hypotheses for private cars renewal in a large urban area. One of the two scenarios includes a partial replacement of the internal combustion engine vehicles with the electric ones. Following a data-driven approach, we calculate well-to-wheel emissions and consumption using real traffic patterns from Floating Car Data. Results show that a 10% penetration of electric vehicles can induce a significant reduction in the primary energy consumption and in the climate-change and pollutant emissions.
