Ambitious new vehicle emissions targets could save European drivers €350 per year, and pay back the cost of the technology within three years, according to a new study by Transport & Environment, a green campaign group.
The European Parliament’s environment committee on Tuesday (7 May) called for the installation of electric speed limiters for vans to prevent their accelerating beyond an agreed 120kph cap. But MEPs rejected reducing the 2020 target for van CO2 emissions to 118g per km.
The European Parliament's environment committee yesterday (28 September) extended a hand to the crisis-stricken automobile industry by voting to lower the long-term CO2 emission limits proposed for vans.
