Updates of the measurement of emissions performance
The European Commission is planning to amend the Regulation (EU) 2019/631 setting CO2 emission performance standards for new passenger cars and for new light commercial vehicles
In August 2020, a public consultation about the update of the data that EU countries must monitor and report on CO2 emissions for cars and light vans was carried out by the European Commission. Under discussion was a draft delegated regulation amending Annexes I, II and III to Regulation (EU) 2019/631 to update the monitoring parameters and clarify certain aspects relating to the change in the regulatory test procedure.
According to the Regulation (EU) 2019/631, the average CO2 emissions targets for passenger car and light commercial vehicle manufacturers will switch from being based on New European Drive Cycle (NEDC) figures to the data based on Worldwide Harmonised Light Duty Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP). The new draft delegated regulation will adjust the data parameters and remove references to NEDC. It will also clarify how the specific emission targets will be calculated in 2021-24 for manufacturers that enter the EU market for the first time during that period.
