One of the most important steps Europe can take to save drivers money, combat climate change, and create high tech jobs is to require carmakers to produce more efficient vehicles. In 2008, the EU set legally-binding CO2 standards for the first time. They say cars sold in Europe in 2015 should emit 130 grammes of CO2 per kilometre on average, and those sold in 2020, 95 grammes. In July 2012, the Commission adopted a proposal for a midterm revision of such emission targets, confirming the 2020 limit of 95 grammes of CO2 per km. We want the EU to set future standards for fuel efficiency and to ensure that car buyers can rely on the fuel consumption figures stated by carmakers.
