Daimler to increase focus of EVs following 7% rise in Mercedes-Benz emissions  | Sustainable Procurement News | Scoop.it

The German automotive manufacturer has revealed plans to further push electric and hybrid vehicles. This decision is in response to stricter emissions tests noting that Mercedes-Benz’s emissions rose by 7% in Europe last year. “On 17 December 2018, the European Parliament and the European Council decided to tighten the CO2 limits yet again: Car emissions are to be reduced by a further 37.5 percent from 2021 to 2030 – a demanding goal,” Daimler stated in a press release. “For Mercedes-Benz Cars, this would correspond to average emissions of 65 g CO2/km per vehicle in 2030 – this would amount to consumption of 2.4 l of diesel or 2.7 l of petrol/100 km.”
