The case for 2025 targets for CO2 emissions from cars and vans - Report

The EU has set a legally-binding target for new cars to emit no more than 95 grammes of CO2 per kilometre (g/km) by 2020. The target for vans is 147g/km. In July 2012, the European Commission announced its proposals on how these targets should be met. These proposals are currently being considered by the European Parliament and Council. The Commission did not propose further standards for 2025.

The average performance of light commercial vehicles has increased during the last decades. Due to this enhanced performance, the achieved levels of fuel consumption and CO2 emission reductions are smaller than the engine efficiency improvements realized in the same period. A possible way to realize this full potential is by modification of engine characteristics to historic power levels.
