2012 CO2 REPORT

This is the 2012 update to JATO’s on-going study of the new car market in Europe, focusing on the official CO2 emissions of the cars sold and registered. The automotive industry has come under intense environmental scrutiny in recent years, with immense pressure applied by legislators, media, customers and stakeholders. 

The European Commission has been influential in drawing attention to, and setting targets for the reduction of CO2 emissions from new vehicles across the continent. European Legislation has set legal targets which the major motor manufacturers must meet, phasing these targets in during the years 2012 through 2015.

With the first year of the implementation of targets now complete, this report investigates how individual markets, manufacturer groups and brands have reduced their volume-weighted average CO2 emissions, whether they have met their 2012 targets, and how far they are from meeting the 2015 targets defined in the regulation. It also includes analysis by segment, and identifies trends in fuel types and vehicle weights.

A REVIEW OF CAR CO2 EMISSIONS ACROSS EUROPE.

The 23 markets, of which 20 are EU member states, covered in this study are, Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and The Netherlands. 

National governments have introduced vehicle taxation strategies based on CO2 emissions, raising the consumer’s interest in low-emission vehicles.

JATO has studied the volumes-weighted average CO2 emissions of new cars registered since 2003 in these European markets.Building on JATO’s global intelligence and experience the following questions will be addressed:

  • How successful have CO2 taxation strategies been?
  • How have different manufacturers fared in the quest to reduce average CO2 emissions? 
  • Have the EU targets for 2012 been met, and how much progress is required to meet the targets for 2015?
