On 1 May 2013, the EU published two new measures amending the mandatory monitoring parameters for monitoring and reporting CO2 emissions from passenger cars. These measures are adopted in the context of 2009 EU legislation which sets mandatory emission performance standards for new cars. The monitoring parameters will now be aligned with those of light commercial vehicles, to include engine capacity, electric energy consumption, as well as the type-approval number.
