  • Discussing the VECTO test to measure CO2 emissions from trucks and buses

    The European Commission has developed a test procedure called VECTO to measure CO2 emissions from new trucks and buses.

    The VECTO test procedure is a simulation tool that aims to provide truck buyers with accurate fuel consumption information. The details of the test procedure are currently being discussed in a DG GROWTH expert committee and the final legislative proposal is expected in mid-2016. In this submission, T&E advocates a truck CO2 test procedure that is reliable, transparent and easy to use for third parties. T&E also demands that the VECTO simulation results be verified through a form of testing for real-world compliance.
