On May 7, 2013 the EU Parliament Environment Committee voted not to reduce CO2 emissions of vans to 118gkm for 2020 but votes in favour of a ballpark range of van emissions of 105 to 120g/km for 2025. Average CO2 emissions of light duty vehicles went from 203g/km in 2010 to 179 in 2011. MEPs also voted to update test procedures for measuring van carbon emissions. On April 24 MEP agreed that from 2020, all new cars in the EU should not emit more than 95 grams of CO2 per km (g/km) and from 2025 between 68 and 78g/km. A decision on the exact figure should be taken before 1 January 2017. The Commission had wanted a decision by 2014 while the car industry had pushed for a delay until 2017.
