MAHLE criticizes EC CO2 regulation proposal for abandoning technology neutrality

Green Car Congress

Last week, the European Commission adopted a package of proposals to make the EU’s climate, energy, land use, transport and taxation policies fit for reducing net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels (Fit for 55). One element of that economy-wide set of proposals is requiring average emissions of new cars to come down by 55% from 2030 and 100% from 2035 compared to 2021 levels.
