This report provides a summary of CO2 emission levels of new passenger cars and vans in the European Union in 2015. The report is based on the data collected by the European Environment Agency (EEA) concerning the CO2 performance of passenger cars, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 443/2009 (EU, 2009), and of light commercial vehicles (vans) in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 510/2011 (EU, 2011). The regulation for passenger cars sets the average CO2 emissions for new passenger cars at 130 g CO2/km by 2015 while the regulation for light commercial vehicles sets the average CO2 emissions for new light commercial vehicles at 175 g CO2/km by 2017. Stricter targets will apply under these regulations from 2020 (vans) and 2021 (cars).
