EU agrees on tougher carbon limits for cars
The EU has agreed stricter targets for carbon dioxide emissions for new cars than previously expected. The Commission, Parliament and member States agreed to reduce the carbon footprint of 37.5 percent in 2030 compared to the year 2021. The Federal government had been the very least to a reduction of 35 percent, the automotive industry had demanded 30 per cent. the

The EU has agreed on a significantly stricter carbon dioxide (CO₂) emission limits for new cars by 2030. The EU Commission, the European Parliament and the member countries agreed procedure in a mediation. New cars should emit by 2030, around 37.5 per cent less CO₂, for light commercial vehicles, a CO₂ was agreed-a reduction of 31 percent. For both vehicle classes is to be achieved by 2025, a reduction of 15 per cent as an interim step.

The agreement is a Surprise because previous compromise attempts failed. The positions diverged: The EU-countries called for a reduction of the CO₂ limits to 35 per cent for new cars in 2030. Germany, too, wore the target, although the Federal government was actually only a reduction of 30 percent. The European Parliament wanted to 40 percent. The EU-Commission

The requirements are intended to help the climate goals of the European Union as a whole and to press the emissions from road transport. The decision is for the car industry is of great importance. To create the new target values only if the manufacturer to sell in addition to Diesel and petrol engines, more and more vehicles without emissions - so, for example, pure electric cars. The only way you can reach your cut. For this you need to rebuild your production.

The Federal government fears job losses if the switching to new drives is completed quickly. Proponents of strict values, to my mind, European car manufacturers could be in competition with China and create new Jobs.

so Far, in the EU, that new cars should not emit a fleet average of 2021, more than 95 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre. From this Basis, the reduction is expected to follow. However, the current default for many manufacturers is not yet in reach: The European average was 118.5 grams. Overall, around a quarter of all greenhouse gases in the EU comes from the transport, cars and trucks have the largest share.
