Billions of dollars are in these years spent on developing electric vehicles, hybrid technology and more frugal internal combustion engines.
part of the justification is that bilgiganterne in 2021 must meet stringent technical pollution standards in the EU, if they want to sell cars within the union and avoid significant fines. At the time, the average CO2 emissions for manufacturers ' announced lie on the highest 95 grams per. miles and more is still a long way to go.
That car manufacturers have put themselves in the harness, is not, however, mean that consumers choose the 'greenest' models. Figures from the analysebureauet Jato shows, on the contrary, the average CO2 emissions for cars sold in the EU in 2018, was higher than in 2017.
According to the Teknikens värld theme park is the second year in a row that the pollution increases.
Last year was the average of CO2 emissions for a nyregistreret car on of 120.5 grams per. kilometres in the EU, which, according to Jato are the highest figures since the 2014 and an increase of 2.4 grams compared to 2017. Analysebureauet writes that consumers last year bought more polluting cars in 20 out of the 23 countries analysed.
Only in the Netherlands, Finland and the elbilglade Norway managed to improve the average.
Nationally the average rose according to Jato with three grams of CO2 pr. kilometres for a total of 111 grams. However, it is still low enough to give Denmark a fourth place, when the countries ' average compared.
According to Jato is especially one tends to blame in the rise: The marked decline in sales of diesel cars. The diesel engine has in the past helped to pull the CO2 average down, but the effect disappeared last year with the sale.
at the same time, it increased the sales of the SUV models have a negative effect on the average, writes analysebureauet.
the Jato has also calculated, which brands, who have had the good luck to sell more environmentally friendly cars. Of the 20 analyzed brands managed it last year for five to sell cars with a lower average CO2 emissions than the year before: Toyota, Nissan, Seat, Volkswagen and Suzuki.
the Biggest drop was Nissan of 5.2 grams per. kilometers. The japanese automobile manufacturer average landed thus on 110,6 gram, which gives place, when the averages are compared.
at the very Top of the list is Toyota, which last year shaved the 1.4 grams of the average for cars sold and thus the performance of the 99.9 grams per. kilometers.
According to the Teknikens värld theme park is the car manufacturers to fines of billions of euros, if they do not manage to hit CO2 target by 2021. The media wrote back in 2017, that in such case they should pay 95 euros per unit. gram, they are higher than the border - multiplied by the number of cars sold.
