• Car fine opposition

    European car makers are continuing their fight against CO2 limits by turning their attention to the fines that can be imposed for missing the 130 g/km target.

    In its annual report, the car makers’ umbrella organisation Acea says it is committed to the new deal but attacks ‘disproportionate fines’ for those who miss their targets. The Commission’s second-highest environment official Jos Delbeke defended the agreement, saying it has made car makers look at fuel consumption ‘very differently’.
