"We welcome the vote of the EP ENVI Committee on the revision of the 2020 targets for reducing CO2 emissions from passenger cars. I believe that the 95 g/km and 147 g/km targets are the best compromise between costs and CO2 emission reductions and that they will help keep the competitive advantage that the European automotive industry has in terms of CO2 emission reduction. The retention of super credits and ecoinnovation for low emission vehicles will also boost the development of breakthrough technologies." said Mr Jean Marc Gales, CLEPA CEO.
