Highlight Reported CO2 emissions from new cars continue to fall
Emissions from official testing reported by national authorities show that new cars sold in the European Union (EU) are increasingly more fuel-efficient. Last year, new passenger cars emitted on average 119.6 grammes (g) of carbon dioxide (CO2) per kilometre, 8% below the official EU target set for 2015, according to provisional data published today by the European Environment Agency (EEA).

Infographic Vehicle emissions and efficiency
In a conventional vehicle, only about 18 to 25 % of the energy available from the fuel is used to move it on the road, depending on the driving conditions. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and drivetrain inefficiencies.

External Data Reference Where the Energy Goes: Gasoline Vehicles
Only about 14%–30% of the energy from the fuel you put in a conventional vehicle is used to move it down the road, depending on the drive cycle. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline inefficiencies or used to power accessories. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous.

Highlight CO2 emissions from new vehicles in Europe continued to decrease in 2014
Vehicles sold in the European Union in 2014 were, on average, 2.5% more efficient than those sold the previous year, according to a new report from the European Environment Agency (EEA). The report, which updates the preliminary data published earlier this year, tracks progress towards CO2 emission targets for new passenger cars and vans.

Highlight New vans sold in Europe are increasingly more fuel-efficient
The average van sold in the European Union in 2014 was around 2.4% more fuel-efficient than those sold in 2013, according to preliminary data from the European Environment Agency (EEA). Fuel efficiency has continued to improve and new vans now emit almost 6 grams of CO2/km below the 2017 target.
