In three out of four scenarios, described in this report from Institute of Transport Economics, the target is reached directly. The fourth requires further actions.
Achieving the target will result in a 35 percent reduction of the average emission level of new vehicles in 2012. This is due to the increased demand for vehicles with lower CO2-emissions and the increase in market share of Electric and Plug-in Hybrid vehicles induced by the tax reform.
A gradual introduction of the reform will reduce the drawbacks and cost for consumers and dealers because the availability of vehicles with low emissions increases over time.
