MADRID, July 5th. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Association of European Automobile Manufacturers (ACEA) has welcomed the decision to review carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions requirements for heavy-duty transport vehicles, which will take place by the end of the year, although it has warned that this convergence must be done through a “wide “ Regulatory framework that ensures climate-neutral transport.
In a statement, the organization indicated that current emission regulations for transport vehicles call for a 15% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2025 and 30% by 2030. She therefore positively assessed the fact that this regulation will be reviewed before the end of this year.
“ACEA welcomes this review as an important opportunity to assess the effectiveness of the regulation, adjust various elements, broaden its scope and, most importantly, ensure that it is consistent with other key regulations that should provide a favorable framework for the transition to.” Climate neutrality,” they added from the association.
From ACEA, they have pointed out that emissions requirements for heavy-duty vehicles are just one element, albeit an important one, of a comprehensive regulatory framework designed to enable zero-carbon road transport.
The organization pointed out that vehicle manufacturers are ready to implement strategies to decarbonize transport, which requires a change in drive technologies towards electromobility and fuel cell vehicles.
In this regard, he pointed out that all manufacturers have started mass production of electric trucks, with more than a dozen models already on the market, while hydrogen vehicles represent “the second largest zero-emission propulsion technology”.
