The EC’s strategy for sustainable and smart mobility is aimed at putting users first and providing them with more affordable, accessible, healthier and cleaner alternatives to their current mobility habits. It tackles all emission sources. To ensure that the price of transport reflects the environmental and health impact, fossil-fuel subsidies will end and any loopholes in the current tax exemptions will be closed. To drastically reduce pollution caused by transport, especially in cities, a combination of measures will address emissions, urban congestion and improved public transport. For example, the EC is proposing new Euro 7 emissions standards for cars, vans, lorries and buses from mid-2021, possibly to include previously unregulated pollutants, which will further squeeze diesel and petrol vehicles out of the market. In parallel, the focus will be on ramping up the production and deployment of sustainable alternative transport fuels – including through legislation to boost the uptake if necessary. By 2025, approximately one million public recharging and refuelling stations will be needed for the 13 million zero- and low-emission vehicles expected on European roads. The EC will therefore complement measures taken at the national level by supporting the development of the required infrastructure, particularly for long-distance travel and in less densely populated areas.
