European 95g/km CO2 standard delayed until 2021 – MondoWorks

The European Parliament has agreed to delay the introduction of a 95g/km CO2 fleet average standard until 2021, following intense lobbying from the car industry.

Originally the 95g/km target was expected to be enforced by 2020, but will now be in place for a year later. The delay to the legislation was forced by after a last-minute intervention by the German government, in support of its premium carmakers BMW and Daimler, according to the environmental NGO, Transport & Environment (T&E).
