Europe's plans for van CO2 controls

The European Parliament's Environment Committee 17 page draft report on van CO2 has been issued by its author, Martin Callanan MEP.

He suggests no changes to the Commission's short-term target of 175g/km CO2, phased in from 2014 to 2016.

The Commission's longer term 2020 target rises from 135g/km to 150g/km while the penalty for van makers who exceed the targets drops from €120 to €95 a vehicle.

Callanan also wants 120kph speed limiters in vans from 2015.

The deadline for changes is May 19, with the committee to vote at its 28 September meeting.
