Executive summary

o  European  automotive  component  suppliers  lead  the world  in  technologies  for  efficient,  low-emissions vehicles, offering diverse technologies and solutions to reduce CO2 emissions;

o  A large variety of smart, safe and sustainable technology solutions  will  be  required  to  meet  society’s  ever  more diverse mobility needs; 

o  Technology-neutrality remains a key necessity in CO2-reduction  policy,  opening  up  several  technological pathways to low carbon mobility;

o  Electrification  offers  an  important  route  to decarbonisation  while  at  the  same  time  the  further improvement of the internal combustion engine remains an  indispensable  path,  to  achieve  the  ‘Paris’  climate change mitigation goals;

o  Advanced  alternative  fuels  as  well  as  off-cycle technologies  offer  additional  significant  CO2-reduction potential that should be unlocked by supportive policy;

o  With available technologies, compared to 2020 targets, an  approximate  20%  to  25%  reduction  in  CO2  per kilometre can be reached by 2030;

o  Building  on  Europe’s  industrial  strength,  policy  makers are  tasked  to  promote  low-carbon  mobility  in  a sustainable  and  competitive  way  –  meeting  ambitious environmental  targets,  strengthening  EU  technology leadership and underpinning growth and employment in Europe.
