Stakeholders from the entire e-mobility ecosystem, wrote to Commissioner Breton, expressing their concerns over his recent comments to Brussels media, in which he warned of a “gigantic disruption” to the automotive sector in the face of reinforced car and van CO2 standards.
The letter reminds the Commissioner that:
- E-Mobility is necessary to reach EU climate and air quality targets
- The transition will create new high-skilled jobs for Europeans
- Charging Infrastructure will not be a bottleneck if ambitious targets are set and implemented
- Electricity production and the grid can keep up
- Raw Materials will be available – if DG GROW acts decisively
- EVs emit less CO2 than ICEs across the board
- EVs emit less fine particulate matter than ICEs
