Volkswagen Group: EU emissions target reached in 2021

Decarbonization is a hot topic in the automotive sector and beyond, with limits imposed by the European Union under the penalty of sanctions. Volkswagen Group has announced that it has met the EU's CO2 emissions target in 2021 with 118.5 g/km compared to an average of 120.8 in its fleet.   “The power outage has gained momentum. Nearly one in five vehicles delivered in Europe were electrified, and more than half of these were 100% electric – in the words of Christian Dahlheim, sales manager for the German conglomerate – this would allow us to further reduce the fleet's CO2 emissions. helped and meet the "European Union goal".  numbers As we said, according to the WLTP cycle, the group's fleet average emissions were 118.5 g/km, which last year also became 'official' for this measurement. In fact, the average emissions in 2020 were 99.9 g/km, but the assessment was still done along the NEDC cycle, so not comparable.  In 2021, 472,300 electrified vehicles were delivered to the EU, including Norway and Iceland, a 64% increase from the previous year. The percentage of vehicles "with plugs" increased to 17.2 of total deliveries (2020: 10.1%). Volkswagen Group is the market leader in Europe with a 25% share in the BEV segment.  electric future There will be many further zero-emissions models launched in the near future, with an investment of around €52 billion between 2022 and 2026 for electric mobility, as well as an investment of 8 billion for range hybridisation.  Notably, the Volkswagen brand plans to launch the ID.5 and ID.5 GTX coupe SUVs, which have already been unveiled, and ID.Buzz, all built on MEB. The same platform will be used for the sporty Skoda Anac IV Coupe and Cupra Born, while Audi will introduce the new e-tron and Porsche with the revamped Taycan and Taycan Sport Turismo.
