cars have to be, by 2030, significantly more climate-friendly: The carbon dioxide emissions of new cars is expected to decline by 37.5 percent in comparison to 2021. On this compromise, the negotiators of the EU States and the European Parliament agreed to the information given by the Austrian presidency on Monday evening in Brussels. For light commercial vehicles, CO2, was agreed on-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 requirements are much more stringent than in the auto industry and the Federal government wanted to do this originally. The EU States had argued in the beginning of October for a reduction in the CO2-value for new cars and light commercial vehicles by an average of 35 percent. Germany wore the target at the time, although the Federal government wanted to, as well as the EU Commission-in fact, only 30 per cent reduction. The European Parliament with a demand for a 40 percent decrease in the negotiations.
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.
fear of job losses
the Only way you can reach your overall average. For this you need to rebuild your production. The Federal government fears job losses if the switching is performed on new drives too fast. 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, a quarter of all greenhouse gases dates back to the EU from the traffic, cars and Trucks have the largest share.More about

Before the last round of the EU-negotiators of the manufacturers ' Association Acea had insistently warned to sharp target values. "If it penetrates to over-ambitious CO2 reduction values, risks to the EU to make cars for people with limited resources to tax", the Association said. The recent protests in France and Belgium showed that the pace of change, the return must have in the company. (dpa)
