B for the tenth time, T&E has made progress with the carmaker the CO2 reduction of the past year. The organization receives the data from the European Environment Agency (EAA). While manufacturers have achieved an average annual reduction of 3.6% since 2007, CO2 emissions were only reduced by 2.6% in 2014.

PPE with the cleanest fleet

Nissan made the biggest leap, with 12.1%. PSA comes to 4.8%, Mazda to 4.4% and Daimler to 3.9%. On the other hand, Ford (0.1%) and Hyundai (0.4%) have increased.

According to absolute figures, PSA Peugeot-Citro├źn is ahead with CO2 fleet emissions of 110.1 grams per kilometer of CO2 . Toyota follows in second place (112.8 g /km). Third is Renault (113.6 g /km). The best-ranked German car maker is Ford (121.7 g /km) in sixth place. The VW Group ranks eighth with 125.8 grams. At the bottom of the list are Daimler (131.5 grams), BMW (131.7 grams) and Honda (133.9 grams).

In addition to documenting the current status, the T&E report also gives an outlook on the future development. According to this, the manufacturers Volvo, Nissan, PSA, Toyota, Daimler and Renault would meet the climate requirements until or even before 2021. VW and Ford would not be ready until 2022, Mazda 2023, BMW and Suzuki not until 2024, Fiat 2025, GM 2026 and Honda and Hyundai not until 2027.

Manufacturers who do not meet EU requirements face fines from 2021. The emissions of 95 grams of CO2 per kilometer correspond to a consumption of 3.6 liters /100 km for diesel models and 4.1 liters /100 km for gasoline models.

In addition, T&E points out that the study on is based on the standard consumption, but the actual everyday consumption is even higher. According to T&E, that could change with the introduction of the WLTP cycle in 2017.
