Topics / CO2 Reduction Technologies for the European Car and Van Fleet: A 2020–2025 Assessment

The ICCT has compiled detailed data on the CO2 reduction potential and associated costs of vehicle technologies for the European light-duty vehicle market (passenger cars and light commercial vehicles). The analysis incorporates extensive vehicle simulation modeling as well as a detailed tear-down cost assessment. Papers in this series summarize the underlying methodology, input data, results of the project.

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.
