Emissions from new cars in the UK 'declining'

Oct 08 2008

Recent research has found that emissions from new cars in the UK are dropping significantly.

Clean Green Cars conducted a report which found that average CO2 emissions from new cars is now 156.6g/km.

This is 7.4g/km less than the same time last year and if this decline carries on, the country could be set to fall below the guidelines put forth by the European Union (EU).

However, the results of the research suggest that this is because consumers are currently reluctant to splash out on more expensive, less green cars.

"Consumers may force the car industry to meet the target, rendering the argument with the EU irrelevant," said Clean Green Cars' market analyst Jay Nagley.

In related news, Reuters today reported that US hybrid car battery makers Johnson Controls claimed that hybrid vehicles would dominate the green car market in the future.
