New Euro laws to impact Aussies
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.
