    Revision of Regulation (EU) 2019/1242

    Regulation (EU) 2019/1242 defines new CO2 targets for several vehicle groups including lorries, buses/coaches and trailers. German heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers and suppliers are strongly committed to rapidly reducing CO2 and exhaust emissions from public passenger and road freight transport and to making newly registered commercial vehicles fossil-free for European roads by 2040. To this end, a coherent, progressive and binding regulatory framework that guarantees the right market conditions for successful climate protection must be created.
