CO2 emissions from new cars continue steep descent in 2010

News in RSS

Average CO2 emissions from new cars in the EU dropped by almost 4% last year, the second biggest annual fall ever recorded, a database published by the European Environment Agency shows. <br/><br/>

Last year's improvements bring the average CO2 emissions of cars registered in the EU to 140 grams per km. At this rate the European target of 130 g CO2/km will be met earlier than the 2015 deadline. The decrease in average emissions in 2010 was lower than in 2009 (5,1%); the results in 2009 were probably influenced by the economic crisis and the scrappage schemes in some Member States.
