In 2009, the European Commission passed a draft bill aimed at limiting carbon dioxide emissions from light commercial vehicles. The draft stipulates that, starting in 2014, the average carbon dioxide emissions of all new light commercial vehicle vehicles should reach the standard of 175 g/km. This new draft bill is only for N1 light trucks with a weight of no more than 3.5 tons at full load or no less than 2.61 tons at no load.

On the implementation date of the emission standards, the European Commission did not adopt a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, it adopted an approach that gradually achieved compliance. That is, in 2014, 75% of new cars produced by automakers should meet the regulatory limits set; the 2015 requirements 80% of new cars meet the standards; from 2016 onwards, all new cars should meet the 175 g/km standard; by 2020, the long-term goal of achieving a CO2 emission limit of 135 g/km will be achieved.

Before 2018, if the total carbon dioxide emissions of vehicles produced by automakers exceeds the limit, a certain amount of fines will be required for each vehicle. Penalties are levied incrementally. If the limit value is less than 1 g/km, a fee of 5 Euros will be required; if it exceeds 1 to 2 g/km, 15 Euros will be required; if it exceeds 2 to 3 g/km, the A fee of 25 euros is payable; for each additional 1 g/km, a fine of 120 euros will be required. After 2019, as long as the limit is exceeded, fines of 120 euros per 1 g/km are required. In order to achieve clear penalties, ultra-low-emission vehicles (below 50 g/km) will receive additional incentives for increasing the number of vehicles at the time of statistics. For example, in 2014, an ultra-low-emission vehicle will be The statistics are 2.5 vehicles. In 2015, it was counted as 1.5 vehicles. From 2016, it can only be counted as 1 vehicle.
