Did you know ?The average CO2 emissions of new cars increased in 2017

In 2017, the average CO2 emissions per kilometre travelled for vehicles put in circulation in Europe increased by 0.4 gCO2/km compared to 2016 and now reached 118.5 g CO2/km. This increase brings six consecutive years of decline in Europe to a standstill. In view of the CO2 emissions standards targets fixed by the European Commission for 2020 (95 g CO2/km), these negative results show the necessity to increase the share of electric vehicles (or plug-in hybrids) in new cars sales. In France, where this increase in CO2 emissions was superior to the European average (+0.6 g CO2/km), electro-mobility, beyond its strengths in terms of noise pollution and air quality, has a positive carbon footprint thanks to the highly decarbonized French electricity.
