The CARS 21 group presented on 6 June 2012 its final report calling for rapid progress and outlining concrete actions to be taken on important subjects such as electro-mobility, road safety and Intelligent Transport Systems, market access strategy as well as review of the regulations on the CO2 emissions from cars and vans.
The CARS 21 group presented on 6 June 2012 its Final Report.
The recommendations contained in the December 2011 Interim Report of the CARS 21 Group are reaffirmed today, but the Final Report goes much further as it sets out a complete vision for the automotive industry in 2020 and provides additional recommendations.
European Commission Vice-President Antonio Tajani, responsible for Industry and Entrepreneurship, said: "The CARS 21 report provides useful input for the important strategic vision for the automotive industry in 2020 which we will present after the summer. But the automotive industry needs to be in good shape first in order to realise this vision. We therefore need to act now and decisively in order to counter current economic difficulties by mobilising financing for research, carefully evaluating any new regulation and supporting the expansion on third markets”.
