RISING CO2 EMISSIONS A PROBLEM OF CARMAKERS’ OWN MAKING AS THEY PUSH SUVS BUT HOLD BACK ELECTRIC CARS

Official new data from the EU’s environmental watchdog (EEA) shows that the CO2 emissions of new cars increased by 1.6% in 2018 to 120.4 grams of CO2 per km. While the lack of progress in real-world emissions and fuel efficiency was known for years,  now even the optimised and unrealistic lab test tests can no longer hide the problem. For the first time, CO2 emissions from vans also rose, by 1.2%.
