How big is the emission problem of PHEVs? New T&E report launch

T&E's latest report on the emission problem of PHEVs, presenting vehicle test results and what they mean for CO2 standards.

Plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) sales are skyrocketing in Europe with half a million expected to be sold this year alone.

Carmakers need to sell low emission vehicles to comply with the 2020/21 EU Car CO2 standards which took effect in January 2020. But are these cars as low emission in the real world as in carmaker test labs? Or are PHEVs high emitting vehicles that carmakers sell as a compliance trick to meet the CO2 targets?

To find out, Transport & Environment has commissioned Emissions Analytics to test some of the best-selling PHEVs on the road. This webinar presented the test results and what they mean for the CO2 credentials of this technology.
