A statistical portrait of passenger car and light commercial vehicle fleets in the European Union from 2001 to 2011
Summarizes how data developed by Ricardo, Inc., was processed to provide the CO2 estimates used as inputs in the development of the EU cost curves.
Summary of the European Commission's proposed mandatory 2020 CO2 emission targets for new passenger vehicles and light-commercial vehicles.
27 April 2012 workshop for regulators, manufacturers, and others working on these issues in the EU in the 2020–25 time frame.
This paper compares fuel consumption / CO2 values of passenger cars from different sources and aims at quantifying the discrepancy between laboratory type-approval values and real-world values, including a retrospective analysis for the years 2001-2011 to determine if the gap between the two datasets has increased over time. Potential explanations for the discrepancies found are discussed and possible practical solutions for the future outlined.
