Under the framework of the European Climate Change Programme, the "European Commission was to present in mid-as of 2006 a Communication to the "European Parliament and "European Council on a revised Community strategy to reduce CO2 emissions from "light-duty vehicles. This review will be based on a thorough impact assessment of the existing Community target of a new car fleet average emission of 120 "CO2 g/km and of the possible measures that could form part of a revised strategy based on an integrated approach to CO2 emissions reductions.

On 7 February 2007, the "European Commission announced plans for new legislation requiring the average "carbon dioxide emissions of the vehicles produced in 2012 to be no more than 130 g/km. This is a bit more than the goal of 120, which corresponds to 4.5 "L/100 km for "diesel and 5 L/100 km for gasoline engines.[5]

In March 2011, the "European Commission presented the EU Transport Roadmap, which shows pathways to achieve a 60% cut in greenhouse gases from all modes of transport by 2050.[6]
