Monitoring CO2 emissions from new passenger cars and vans in 2016

This report provides a summary of the CO2 emission levels of new passenger cars and vans in the European Union in 2016. The report is based on the data collected by the European Environment Agency (EEA) concerning the CO2 performance of passenger cars, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 (EU, 2009), and of light commercial vehicles (vans) in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 (EU, 2011). The regulation for passenger cars sets a target for the average CO2 emissions from new passenger cars of 130 g CO2/km by 2015, while the regulation for light commercial vehicles sets the average CO2 emissions target for new light commercial vehicles of 175 g CO2/km by 2017. Stricter targets will apply under these regulations from 2020 (vans) and 2021 (cars). These regulations are based on emissions measured using the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC). For each manufacturer, average specific emissions, defined as the average value for each manufacturer's fleet of newly registered vehicles in the EU that year, are compared with specific emission targets. Starting from 2013 for cars and 2014 for vans, a binding specific emission target applies for each manufacturer, based on a limit value curve according to the average mass of the new vehicles registered by that manufacturer. This report presents the main statistics reported by Member States, as well as the manufacturers' progress towards their targets. The EEA has collected and quality-checked data on CO2 emissions from passenger cars and vans registered in all EU Member States since 2010. Using Member State data, as verified by manufacturers, this report provides an overview of the performance of car and van manufacturers in meeting their 2016 CO2 emission targets.
