On 8 November 2017, as part of the second Clean Mobility Package, the Commission presented its proposal setting emission performance standards for new passenger cars and for new light commercial vehicles for the post-2020 period. These targets, based on the new WLTP test, are set for the EU-wide fleet as % reductions of 15% in 2025 and 30% in 2030 respectively compared to the average of the specific emission targets for 2021.

The two-step approach is meant to ensure that emission reductions occur as early as possible. The proposal also includes a "bonus" mechanism to incentivise zero- and low-emission vehicles, by setting benchmarks of 15% and 30% for 2025 and 2030. Finally, the proposed framework introduces market surveillance mechanisms that include the collection, publication, and monitoring of real world fuel consumption data based on an obligation for manufacturers to fit standardised 'fuel consumption measurement devices' in new vehicles as well as in-service conformity checks to ensure that the vehicles on the road perform as those approved during type-approval.

ITRE and TRAN committees are providing an opinion.
