On 8 November 2017, the Commission as part of the second Clean Mobility Package, proposed a revision of the Directive 2009/33/EC on the promotion of clean and energy efficient road transport vehicles (the Clean Vehicles Directive). This proposal, which aims to promote clean mobility solutions in public procurement tenders, is in line with the European Commission's Energy Union strategy, which foresees actions on the further decarbonisation of road transport.

The Commission's Clean Vehicles Directive proposal aims to overcome several serious shortcomings identified in Directive 2009/33/EC and to increase the market uptake of clean, i.e. low- and zero-emission vehicles. The revision aims to ensure that the Directive covers all relevant procurement practices, that it provides clear, long-term market signals, and that provisions are simplified and effective. It aims to increase the transport sector's contribution to the reduction of CO2 and air pollutant emissions and to competitiveness and growth. The proposal also supports better alignment, and hence greater market impact of, public procurement policies in Member States.
