Figure Car ownership rates projections
Car ownership trends and projections (2000-2050). Although car ownership is projected to grow at much higher rates in China and India than in the rest of the world, the number of cars per person in 2050 will still stay below that of more advanced economies.

Highlight Carbon efficiency of new cars is increasing
Preliminary data published today by the European Environment Agency (EEA) show that new passenger cars registered in the European Union (EU) in 2010 are emitting 3.7 % less CO2 per kilometre travelled than new cars from 2009. A new data viewer with confirmed data will be available in October allowing consumers to compare the carbon efficiency of cars from different manufacturers.

Publication chemical/x-pdb Consumption and the environment - SOER 2010 thematic assessment
The consumption of goods and services in EEA member countries is a major driver of global resource use and associated environmental impacts. Growth in global trade is resulting in an increasing share of environmental pressures and impacts from European consumption taking place beyond Europe. Food and drink, housing, mobility and tourism are responsible for a large part of the pressures and impacts caused by consumption in the EU. Achieving significant reductions in environmental pressures and impacts will require changing private and public consumption patterns, to supplement gains achieved through better technology and improved production processes.
