The EU wishes to engage. Due to high emissions on car manufacturers already 2021 criminal to get payments in the amount of 3.3 billion euros.
MUNICH dpa | Ten car manufacturers next year, EU threaten according to a study, penalties of EUR 3.3 billion due to high CO2-values. Short-term measures, such as discounts for electrified or highly efficient cars would be able to cushion the hardly, said the industry experts of the consulting firm Deloitte in Munich.

Last year, new cars clashed in the EU-cut out 108 grams of CO2 per kilometre. Since January, the EU prescribes for climate protection, a maximum value of 95 grams. Large, heavy cars are allowed to a little to emit more. This year, the manufacturer can have the five percent of their fleet with the worst values in the calculation yet on the outside – but in 2021 it will be serious. For every gram above the limit of 95 euros will be payable for each sold car. By 2030, the EU will cut the limit further to 59 grams.
The share of Plug-in Hybrids and electric cars in new registrations is expected to rise in the current year to 11 per cent, and by 2026 to 34 percent, according to the Deloitte study. The share of SUV-vehicles are expected to increase to 41 percent and 40 percent of this city are all-terrain vehicles with Plug-in Hybrid or electric drive on the road, but only 32 percent of the other cars. "The profit margins on large SUVs are high," said Deloitte industry expert Thomas Schiller. With electrified SUVs, the manufacturers could hit two birds with one stone.
But the corporations had to fight with the CO2 requirements for years to: "the associated profitability, and losses are only partially avoidable." Schiller said: "The car manufacturers now have the choice whether you pay a high CO2 penalties in the EU, or E-cars to sell prices at which they earn little to nothing. E-cars will be in the next few years, a subsidy of business.“ Change it only if you are coming on high-volume.Date Of Update: 08 March 2020, 17:00
