The German car manufacturer have announced their new Porsche Impact carbon-offset program which will be available in the US quicker than you can say “eco-friendly.” While it may only be available to a small range of their cars for now, it’s believed that they will continue rolling this out in larger numbers as it proves to be more and more successful. All cars from the Porsche Experience Center in LA and Atlanta will be the first to be part of the carbon-offset program, along with their Porsche Passport and Porsche Drive vehicles.
How It Works
The concept for Porsche Impact is quite simple. The car makers will work out how much carbon dioxide has been emitted through the cars’ mileage. They will then turn that into a payment that will go to climate change agencies, in order to offset the carbon dioxide their cars have blasted into the atmosphere. Pretty clever, huh? Customers will be able to sign their cars up online for Porsche Impact, and then they’ll be able to cover the cost of the carbon-offsetting based on how many miles they drive.
How Much It Costs
According to Porsche, if you drove one of their 2019 Cayenne S models around 10,000 miles a year, then the payment would be around $67 to $152 to the environmental program of choice. It’s only a small yearly costs that can make a big difference to our planet, and make you feel far less guilty for driving a sports car.
The scheme is already in place in Germany, Poland, and the UK, and it won’t be long before the rest of the US can sign up for it too!
