The new European Commission regulation introducing mandatory CO2 emissions limits for passenger cars was published on June 5, according to InterRegs, an online resource for global vehicle safety and emissions regulations. The regulation—(EC) No 443/2009—specifies that passenger car manufacturers meet an average CO2 emissions limit of 130 g/km or pay a penalty. Compliance will be phased in between 2012 and 2015, with 65% of each manufacturer’s vehicles to comply in 2012, increasing to 75% in 2013, 80% in 2014, and 100% in 2015. The regulation also provides credits for vehicles with CO2 emissions of less than 50 g/km and sets a target of 95 g/km CO2 emissions by 2020.
