A comprehensive investigation of mass, aerodynamic drag, and tire rolling resistance in Europe's LDV fleet, and estimates reductions in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions that could be achieved by reducing those driving resistances.
A concise overview of the EU's vehicle CO2 emission reduction requirements, targets for 2025–2030 that are coming under consideration, and current best projections of vehicle-specific CO2 reduction technology potential and costs in that time frame.
Presents detailed results and methodology of a study using computer simulation modeling, vehicle tear-down analysis, and additional supplementary data to estimate compliance costs of potential vehicle CO2 emission standards for the European passenger car and light-commercial vehicle fleets in 2025–2030.
Reports the results of simulation modeling and "tear-down" cost estimates of vehicle fuel-efficiency technologies, focused on the European fleet and using a 2025 time horizon, performed for the ICCT by the engineering consultancy FEV.
Extends an analysis of the gap between official and real-world fuel consumption and CO2 emission values for passenger cars in Europe and investigates the reasons for the increasing gap.
Aims to inform the debate over how electric vehicle technology could fit into a lower-carbon new-vehicle fleet in Europe in 2020–2030. Although the analysis is focused on Europe, similar technology, policy, and market dynamics can be observed throughout North America and Asia.
Summary of provisional data from the European Environment Agency. Average CO2 emissions from new cars sold in the EU in 2015 were 119.6 g CO2/km, 8% below the 2015 target and 3% lower than in 2014.
Compares official fuel consumption values with real-world performance for 20 popular vehicle models. Officially, fuel consumption gains in these 20 models ranged from 8% to 30%. But on-road measurements indicate that 8 of the 20 showed little to no improvement in real-world fuel efficiency.
