European automakers have a long road ahead to meet 2008 CO2 emissions targets
The study is important, because in the European Automobile Manufacturers Association pledged to the European Union in 1998 that its members would drop average CO2 emissions for new cars to 140 grams per kilometer by 2008 (a reduction of 25 percent over 1995 levels). As of right now, Nissan, Suzuki, Mazda, Audi, Volvo, BMW and Volkswagen are less than halfway there, while Fiat, Citroen, Renault, Ford and Peugeot should be able to meet or exceed the target.
