  1. SMMT New Car CO2 Report 9 March 2010

  2. Contents • Average new car CO2 performance • Total new car CO2 emissions • Impact on 2009 new car CO2 performance • Scrappage Incentive Scheme • 2009 CO2 performance trends • Outlook for UK new car CO2 emissions

  3. UK new car CO2 emissions • Continuous improvement, to new low of 149.5g/km • 5.4% improvement on 2008 and 21.2% on 1997 UK average new car CO2 emissions (Source SMMT)

  4. Total car CO2 emissions • Data to 2008 shows recent reduction in overall car emissions • Impact of improved technology, as well as recession Growth in car CO2emissions, fuel use, parc and distance travelled (Source DECC, DFT ,SMMT)

  5. Impact on 2009 performance • Improved technology – more choice of lower emitters • Recession – curbed demand for high emitters • Scrappage incentive scheme • Fuel prices – higher, encourages efficiency • Government policy, notably taxation • Consumer information – e.g. colour coded fuel label • Consumer preference – shift to mini/supermini segment

  6. Scrappage Incentive Scheme • Strong take up, registrations largely mini/superminis • SIS cars lower than average CO2 emissions, at 133.3g/km CO2emissions of car through SIS, total market and scrapped car (Source SMMT)

  7. Change in emissions by segment • All segments seen improvements • Mini best gain in year, -6.7%. MPVs best versus 1997, -28.6% Change in new car CO2 emissions by segment, 2009 versus ‘08 and ’97 (Source SMMT)

  8. Distribution of CO2 emissions • Continuous shift to the left, into lower emitting models • 20% market sub 120g/km, and 47% sub 140g/km Distribution of the new car market by 5g/km CO2 bands (Source SMMT)

  9. Distribution by VED • Move to lower VED bands, E (131-140g/km) most popular • Bands K-M (225g/km +) share now 5.8%, was 28.1% in ‘97 Distribution of the new car market by VED bands (Source SMMT)

  10. Outlook for new car CO2 emissions • New car CO2 regulation – 130g/km by 2015 in EU • Industry action, government measures, consumer sentiment NAIGT technology road map (Source NAIGT)

  11. Conclusions • Further significant progress being made. • Net impact on reducing total CO2 emissions. • Short term - progress may be tempered by economic recovery and removal of the SIS. • Long term - VM response to regulation, national government measures and changing consumer sentiment to lower emissions. • Integrated approach – industry (vehicle and fuel suppliers), government, and consumers to pull together for change. Automotive Council set up to aid process. • Stabilityandpredictability in taxation/regulation desired. • Report does also introduce van CO2 emissions.
