  • Is COVID-19 Impact and SAFE Rule an Enabler on Investment Reduction to Meet Regulation? (Now Available!)
    Will the SAFE rule which reduced regulatory targets, along with the impact of Covid-19, allow for a powertrain investment reduction in the United States?

This report provides details on key measures to reduce CO₂ along with an emphasis on resulting incremental powertrain cost.
  • 2030 EU Passenger Car CO₂ Emission Target and Impacts Under the Green Deal (Now Available!)
    Passenger car electrifications for fleet CO2 reduction is considered an important pathway leading to the Green Deal objective. But what are the gaps to comply in 2030, how much electrification is needed to meet the 2030 target, and at what level of investments will such movements incur? In this report we review three scenarios for the 2030 passenger car CO2 emission target: (1) 37.5% reduction from 2021 based on current legislation, (2) 50% reduction based on the Impact Assessment of 2030 Climate Target Plan, and (3) 55% reduction based on a recent EU voting result towards 60% GHG reduction by 2030 from the 1990 level.
