New Euro laws to im­pact Aussies

Wheels (Australia) - - Redline -

You’d think Aus­tralia would be in­su­lated from emis­sions leg­is­la­tion in Europe, but we likely won’t be. Last month, Europe’s par­lia­ment voted to in­crease emis­sions reg­u­la­tions in its mem­ber na­tions – a move that would see av­er­age ve­hic­u­lar CO2 emis­sions in 2030 drop by 40 per­cent rel­a­tive to the al­ready strict 2021 tar­get. The pro­posed limit for 2030 is a mere 38g of CO2 per km for pas­sen­ger cars. The knock on ef­fect will likely be a rapid pro­lif­er­a­tion of EVS, PHEVS and hy­brids through model ranges, which are sure to make their way Down Un­der.
