Brussels, 7 May 2019 – As part of wider efforts to reduce CO2 emissions from road transport, the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) is calling for a policy framework that supports an EU-wide high-capacity transport system. This should allow for high-capacity vehicles – specifically designed to carry twice as much freight as standard trucks – to travel on dedicated parts of the EU road network. ACEA made this call to policy makers at an event in Brussels today.
Brussels, 5 April 2019 – Average CO2 emissions from new cars were 118.5 grams of CO2 per kilometre in 2017, or up 0.4% compared to 2016, according to data published by the European Environment Agency (EEA) yesterday. This final data largely confirms the provisional 2017 figures, already published by the EEA in April last year.
