The European Environment Agency (EEA) has categorized its provisional information about the emanations of recently enlisted traveler vehicles and vans in Europe in 2020. For vehicles, the information shows a 12 % decline in normal carbon dioxide (CO2) outflows, contrasted and 2019.
Normal van emanations likewise diminished somewhat, by about 1.5 % According to the EEA’s provisional data, the average emissions of new passenger cars registered in the European Union (EU), Iceland, Norway, and the United Kingdom in 2020 were 107.8 grams of CO2 per kilometre (g CO2/km). This was 14.5 g (12 %) lower than in 2019 and represented the first decrease observed since 2016. The share of electric vehicles in new registrations tripled from about 3.5 % in 2019 to about 11 % of new registrations in 2020.
About 1.4 million new vans registered in Europe in 2020 with average emissions of 157.7 g CO2/km, which is 2.3 g (1.5 %) lower than in 2019. The share of electric vans increased from 1.4% in 2019 to about 2.3% in 2020.
The EEA gathers and routinely makes accessible information on new traveler vehicles and vans enrolled in Europe, following EU Regulation (EU) No 2019/631. The information are accounted for by all EU Member States, the United Kingdom, Iceland (since 1 January 2018), and Norway (since 1 January 2019) to assess the effectiveness of the new vehicle armada and remembers data for CO2 discharges and vehicle mass.
