Resum
WRF-ARW/HERMES/CMAQ modelling system is applied with high resolution (1 km2, 1 h) to assess changes in Madrid and Barcelona (Spain) air quality due to hybrid cars introduction. The substitution of the oldest cars by hybrids is effective to reduce NO2 and PM2.5 levels in the conurbations (up to 35%/12% in Madrid downtown, when 30% of cars are changed). In VOC-limited areas, as Barcelona, the NOx emissions abatement locally increases tropospheric ozone concentration. Downwind, however, the precurs...
