Study: Life cycle assessment approach to vehicle emissions regulation recommended
Association : 13 July, 2013
A new study commissioned by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) says that with increasing efficiencies of powertrains and fuels that contribute to lower emissions during the driving phase of the car, the use of tailpipe CO2e emissions will become "almost irrelevant in terms of focusing on true carbon profiles’ of future vehicles. This study further underscores the need for a life cycle approach in future automotive emissions regulations as vehicle production phase emission impacts become more significant.
