“The growing gap means consumers spend a lot more money on fuels than anticipated. According to studies by our members, motorists pay in average an extra 400€ per year for fuel”
Provisional data for European new car carbon emissions in 2017 published today shows the small but expected rise in new car CO2 emissions of 0.4g/km is due to the strong growth in sales of crossover and SUV models – mainly diesel powered.
A comparison of official and real-world fuel consumption and CO2 values for passenger cars in Europe, the United States, China, and Japan
A 2017 update of official and “real-world” fuel consumption and CO2 values for passenger cars in Europe
Since 2012 new car CO2 emissions have reduced by just 2% on the road compared to nearly 11% in fake laboratory tests.
PEMS tests for CO2 fuel economy provide a robust basis for measuring the real-world fuel economy and CO2 emissions of vehicles
Diesel cars not only are worse than petrol cars in terms of air pollution, they also emit more CO2
Electrification and ambitious CO2 standards for Europe’s cars are key to decarbonising transport
