Highlight All larger carmakers met CO2 targets in 2012
All the main carmakers have met their 2012 targets for vehicles' average carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, according to the European Environment Agency (EEA). However, most will need to sell increasingly efficient vehicles to meet targets in 2015 and beyond.

Infographic Air pollution: from emissions to exposure
Poor air quality is a serious health and environmental problem. Certain harmful air pollutants are emitted directly from vehicles, such as ‘primary’ particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxides (NOX). Others, such as ozone and ‘secondary’ PM, form in the atmosphere after emissions of precursor pollutants, including NOX and volatile organic compounds. Different sources of pollution, including transport and non-transport sources, emit different types and ratios of pollutants.

Data Monitoring of CO2 emissions from vans – Regulation 510/2011
The Regulation (EC) No 510/2011 requires Member States to record information for each new van registered in its territory. Every year, each Member State shall submit to the Commission all the information related to their new registrations. In particular, the following details are required for each new van registered: manufacturer name, type approval number, type, variant, version, make and commercial name, specific emissions of CO2, mass of the vehicle, wheel base, track width, fuel type and fuel mode. Additional information, such as engine power and engine capacity were also submitted.

External Data Reference Mind the Gap 2015: Closing the chasm between test and real-world car CO2 emissions
Report of the European Federation for Transport and Environment: The system of testing cars to measure fuel economy and CO2 emissions is utterly discredited. This report analyses the gap between test results and real-world performance and finds that it has become a chasm, increasing from 8% in 2001 to 31% in 2012 and 40% in 2014. Without action this gap will grow to nearly 50% by 2020.

Infographic Troff document Flexibilities in the NEDC test approval procedure
Flexibilities exploited by manufacturers during the NEDC test cycle can be broadlygrouped into two categories: those relevant to the initial coast-down test and thoserelevant to the type approval test itself.

External Data Reference Copert 4
The popular, straightforward and simple to use emissions calculator. COPERT 4 is a software tool used world-wide to calculate air pollutant and greenhouse gas emissions from road transport. The development of COPERT is coordinated by the  European Environment Agency (EEA) , in the framework of the activities of the  European Topic Centre for Air Pollution and Climate Change Mitigation . The European Commission's  Joint Research Centre  manages the scientific development of the model. COPERT has been developed for official road transport emission inventory preparation in EEA  member countries . However, it is applicable to all relevant research, scientific and academic applications.

SOER Key fact (Deprecated) chemical/x-pdb New cars more CO2 efficient
There were 12.8 million new vehicles registered in the EU in 2011. The average CO2 emissions for these cars was 135.7 grams CO2 per kilometre, which is 4.6g CO2/km less than in 2010 – a reduction of 3.3 %.

Publication Impact of selected policy measures on Europe's air quality
The main objective of the present study is to analyse and quantify the effects that certain past policy measures in the road transport and industrial combustion facilities have had on the magnitude of air pollutant emissions and subsequent air quality in Europe. The policies selected are the Euro emission standards for road vehicles and the EU directives on Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) and large combustion plants (LCP).

File Troff document Curbing CO2 emissions from road transport
Road transport generates about one fifth of the EU's CO2 emissions, with passenger cars responsible for around 12%. This makes it the second most important source of greenhouse gases. Although there have been significant improvements over recent years in vehicle technology, these have not been enough to neutralise the effect of increases in traffic and car size.
