European carmakers’ association Acea has hit back at emerging EU plans to legislate on vehicle CO2 emissions. The European commission has taken insufficient account of the way that EU safety measures have made cars heavier and less fuel efficient, Acea boss Ivan Hodic told the Financial Times newspaper in an article published on Monday. Mr Hodic’s comments come after confirmation by EU environment commissioner Stavros Dimas on Friday that he intends to abandon an existing current voluntary agreement with carmakers (EED 30/10/06).
