A Common EU Approach to Liability Rules and Insurance for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles: European Added Value Assessment: Accompanying the European Parliament's legislative own-initiative report

The findings of this European added value assessment (EAVA) suggest that it is necessary to revise the current legislative EU framework for liability rules and insurance for connected and autonomous vehicles. Not only would revision ensure legal coherence and better safeguarding of consumers rights but it would also be likely to generate economic added value. It is argued that accelerating the adoption curve of driverless or autonomous vehicles (AVs) by five years has the economic potential to generate European added value worth approximately €148 billion. This analysis has been drawn up by the European Added Value Unit within the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS). It builds on two expert research studies carried out by the Utrecht Centre for Accountability and Liability Law and RAND Europe for the European Added Value Unit of the European Parliament's DG EPRS. The two expert research papers are presented in full: (Annex I) Legal analysis of the EU common approach on the liability rules and insurance related to connected and autonomous vehicles , by Dr E.F.D. Engelhard and R.W. de Bruin, LL.M.; (Annex II) Socio-economic analysis of the EU common approach on the liability rules and insurance related to connected and autonomous vehicles by Charlene Rohr, Fay Dunkerley and David Howarth.
