No time to lose for the European Commission to make plug-in hybrid CO2 emission values more realistic — and no need to wait!
Assumptions regarding how frequently PHEVs are charged has a big impact on the gap between real-world and type-approval emissions.
This blog uses recent ICCT modeling of the post-2020 European Union CO2 standards to quantify just how large the climate benefits of setting annual CO2 targets would be.
Without strengthened interim targets for 2025 to 2029, the European Union risks losing its leading role in the uptake of electric vehicles. The 2030 target by itself won’t fix it.
Including alternative fuels credits in EU vehicle standards would be an unwelcome distraction on the road to electrification.
Last year we found that two very similar policies produced dramatically different outcomes in the real world for HDVs. Cars have an even more dramatic story.

In light of mounting evidence that the test used to monitor heavy-duty vehicle emissions in the United States is not working as intended, is it time for a replacement?
The European Commission is keeping a close eye on the CO2 emissions of trucks certified over the next six months.
When it comes to reducing aviation emissions, not every choice has the same impact.
