PHEVs & the Car CO2 Review: Europe’s Chance to Tackle Fake Electrics

By Eoin Bannon

Sales of plug-in hybrid (PHEV) cars have soared following the entry into force of the 2020/21 EU car fleet CO2 target of 95g CO2/km, with over half a million units sold in 2020. PHEVs share of total electric car (EVs) sales is now half of the plug-in market and is set to even increase in the short term as a key compliance technology for many carmakers. This is why Europe needs to act fast to ensure only truly low emission PHEVs are sold. This paper presents T&E’s recommendations for the regulatory changes necessary.
