Benefits of extending the EU heavy-duty CO2 emissions standards to other truck segments

An upcoming review of the heavy-duty CO2 emissions standards in the European Union will consider several adjustments to the regulation, including the possibility of extending the CO2 emissions reduction targets to other vehicle segments, as well as setting specific targets for trailers. This study assesses the additional benefits that would result from extending the CO2 standards to these other segments under several alternate scenarios and provides recommendations for the 2022 review of the standards.
