In the EU by a third will reduce exhaust emissions up to 2030

In 2030 new cars in the EU will throw away 35% less CO2 than that provided by the current standard limits emissions.

In 2030 registered in the European Union, new passenger cars must have 35% less carbon dioxide (CO2) in their emissions. The decision adopted by the EU Council at the level of the environment Ministers meeting in Luxembourg on Wednesday, October 10, reports UKRINFORM.
