According to the published data, the authorities of the European Union are going to tighten the standards of carbon dioxide emissions from cars with internal combustion engines. Such a move is fraught with increased costs for the design of new emission reductions for automakers.

According to the latest data, the EU authorities plan to reduce the amount of emissions into the atmosphere by 50% by 2030, while earlier this figure was 37.5%. The base year in this case will be 2021, in which manufacturers will be required to achieve an emission level of 95 grams per 1 kilometer of run.

At the same time, the plan provides for reducing the dependence of countries on the consumption of coal, gas and oil products and increasing the share of renewable energy. It is planned that heavy equipment will gradually switch to fuel cell power. By 2030, the EU wants to reach 35% of the total vehicle fleet, which will be electric cars and hybrids.
