Fact sheet: CO2 targets for vans
When it comes to future CO2 targets, the situation for vans (also known as light commercial vehicles or LCVs) is completely different to that for passenger cars. Some technological solutions to reduce CO2 from cars are simply not applicable to vans, and the lower production volumes of LCVs do not allow for the same economies of scale.
As this fact sheet demonstrates, policy makers should pay special attention to the specificities of the light commercial vehicle segment when setting future CO2 targets. That is also why the CO2 ambition level and low-emission vehicle benchmark for vans should be significantly lower than the post-2021 targets set for passenger cars.
