After two consecutive years of CO2 emission drops – driven by the EU CO2 standards -, in the absence of a higher target, 2022 has seen both a stagnation of emission reductions and a slowdown of electric car sales.
With little regulatory incentive for carmakers to scale up electric vehicle production over the coming decade, policy makers risk putting the brakes on Europe’s emobility boom. Weak CO2 targets in the 2020s not only threaten the achievement of European countries’ climate goals, but also put at risk European industrial competitiveness, leaving the door open for Chinese carmakers to capture the mass market for BEVs.
As the revision of the car CO2 standards legislation nears the finishing line, trilogue negotiations offer a last chance to fix some of the regulatory loopholes that will otherwise weaken carmakers’ targets even further.
In this context, the EU must consider additional measures to accelerate BEV supply on top of the weak CO2 targets before 2030.
