Emissions legislation – the main driver for adopting VVA


This European Parliament regulation calls for the reduction of the average fleet consumption and the cutting of carbon emissions produced by European automobile manufacturers to 95g/km by 2020.

This chart shows the targeted values for 2015 and 2020, as well as values that are in discussion for 2025.  Also displayed is the penalty fees that will apply as of 2020 and the European fleet average for 2012.


KSPG surveys indicate up to 12% fuel reduction in the mapping area with the same or even improved fuel load and emissions performance.
