Tougher limits on greenhouse gas emissions for cars in the EU

Apr 28, 2014
Greenhouse gas emissions from newly built cars in the EU face tougher limits as of 2020. Also the European Parliament recently approved the new EU Regulation for a more realistic test cycle for fuel consumption to be put in place.

From 2021, the average greenhouse gas emissions from a new car will be limited to 95 grams per kilometre. By 2020, 95 per cent of cars must meet the new target. The limit as from 2015 will be set at 130 grams per kilometre. 

The current fuel consumption test cycle called New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) is to be replaced by the new Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedures (WLTP) within the next few years. Some Members of European Parliament (MEPs) are claiming that the NEDC is out of touch with real-life driving on the road and that consumers need a more realistic consumption test. The new WLTP standard will be mandatory for all EU countries by 2017.
