- The pace of change has accelerated since the CARS21 mid-term vision (October 2008);
- The increased efficiency of the combustion engine has reduced the CO2 emissions quicker than anticipated;
- The crisis and the economic measures taken has reduced the size of cars and engines with lower total CO2 emissions as a results
Environmental Issues and the impact in the Automotive Industry
- Global Warming increased awareness;
- CO2 emissions (legislation adopted from the EU Parliament on December 2008);
- EURO V – particulate EURO VI – NOx
- National CO2 taxation
- Regional environmental regulations
Development of new low carbon technologiesObjectives:
- The primary aim is to reduce energy consumption and pollution by developing increasingly energy efficient vehicles through improving powertrain management (engines, transmission and driveline).
- These vehicles will be adaptable to new, sustainable fuels, but a balanced process for energy generation is needed.
- We believe that it is possible to develop mobility based on renewable energy sources but that in order to ensure security of supply we will have a mix of fuels.
