Fleet-average CO2 emissions of new cars sold in the EU should improve at a rate of five per cent a year, achieving 120 g/km by 2012, 80 g/km by 2020, and 60 g/km by 2025 says T&E in a response to the European Union public consultation on cars and climate change.

Why European climate policy for cars is failing, and what can be done about it (T&E 05/05)
Traffic speed is a key variable in transport policy. Speed plays a dominant role in a string of transport indicators such as mobility demand, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, air pollution, noise, safety and congestion. This short paper takes reducing CO2 emissions as a primary angle.
The objective of this paper is to arrive at an assessment of the cost effectiveness of more fuel efficient cars.
