Electric car sales set to treble, but there’s a risk of growth fizzling without tougher targets

The EU’s car CO2 standards are driving rapid growth of zero-emission vehicles sales. That is the conclusion of an analysis by T&E into the growth of electric vehicles in the first half of 2020, as Europe’s carmakers have just two more months to meet the 2021 emissions standards. But T&E is warning that the progress made so far could fizzle out within two years unless the EU revises its emissions limits from 2025 onwards.
