The European Parliament has adopted new CO2 emissions limits for light trucks and vans. The regulation passed on Feb. 15, 2011, according to InterRegs, an online resource for global vehicle safety and emissions regulations. It follows the same format as EC Regulation No. 443/2009 on passenger car CO2 emissions, but implements an average CO2 emissions limit of 175 g/km. As with the passenger car regulation, compliance is phased in over a four-year period. By 2014, 70% of each manufacturer’s vehicles must comply, increasing to 75 % in 2015, 80% in 2015, and reaching total compliance by 2017. Excess emissions premiums will be levied for noncompliance. The regulation also permits additional credits for vehicles with CO2 emissions of less than 50 g/km and sets a long-term emissions target of 147 g/km to be achieved by 2020.
