Council and the European Parliament reach provisional agreement over stricter CO2 emission performance standards for new vehicles

Created on Friday, 04 Nov 2022 12:15:31

EU Parliament and Council have reached a provisional agreement on a 55% reduction in CO2 emissions for new cars and 50% for new vans by 2030, compared to 2021 levels. By 2025, the Commission would create a standard EU methodology for evaluating the total CO2 emissions from automobiles and vans sold in the EU as well as the fuel and energy they use. Up until the end of 2035, the agreement preserves a derogation for small volume manufacturers.  

The provisional political agreement reached in trilogue negotiations will now have to be formally adopted by the Council and the Parliament. The regulation will require companies to pay for every gram of CO2 emitted above the targets set by the EU, which would make zero-emission cars cheaper than those powered by fossil fuels. 

This infographic explains why the EU is toughening CO2 emission standards for cars and vans, in the framework of the “Fit for 55” package.
