Position paper – Review of the Clean Vehicles Directive

The European Commission has proposed a review of Directive 2009/33/EC, the so-called Clean Vehicles Directive, which aims to increase the share of low- and zero-emission vehicles in contracts tendered by public authorities in the 28 EU member states.

The review should be seen in the context of the Commission’s recent proposal for future CO2 targets for passenger cars and vans, as well as the upcoming proposal on CO2 standards for heavy-duty vehicles.

This ACEA position paper provides the perspective of the European automobile industry on the review proposed by the Commission, as well as making specific recommendations for cars and vans on the one hand, and buses and trucks on the other.
