3. Relevance Top

The indicator is part of the Resource Efficiency Scoreboard. It is used to monitor progress towards a resource efficient Europe on the thematic objective of 'Ensuring efficient mobility' included in the specific theme 'Key areas'.

The EU set mandatory emission reduction targets for new cars of 130 grams of CO2 per kilometre in 2015 and 95 grams of CO2 per kilometre in 2021. These targets apply to a manufacturer’s overall fleet, meaning that heavier cars with emissions above the limit value are still allowed but must be offset by the production of lighter cars to preserve the overall fleet average.
