Energy consumption during car production in the EU
European car makers have reduced the energy consumption of car production by 6% since 2005, as this interactive infographic shows.
As cars have become equipped with ever more features to make them safer, cleaner and smarter, the complexity of vehicle production has increased. This increase in complexity affects energy demand. Nevertheless, manufacturers have been working continuously to improve the energy efficiency of production.
As a result, total energy consumption from car production has been decreased by 6% over the last 17 years.
