Vehicle technology costs: Estimates vs. reality

In Europe by now we have gained considerable experience with setting CO2 standards for light-duty vehicles: First, in 2009 a target of 130 g/km for 2015 was adopted, then 2014 the target of 95 g/km...The IKA institute just released a study on technology potential and cost for 2025/2030 CO2 targets in the EU—an opportune moment to look back at all the previous such studies and see how accurate...
