CO2 emissions from car production in the EU

European car makers have reduced total CO2 emissions from production by almost 49% since 2005, as this interactive chart shows.

The CO2 emissions per car produced dropped by 33.1% between 2005 and 2020, while the overall figure went down by 48.5% over the same period, reflecting the industry’s efforts to reduce CO2 emissions from production.

Manufacturers have been able to decouple CO2 emissions from production growth by increasingly sourcing energy from renewable and/or low-carbon sources.
