Abstract

The most important weapons currently used against continuously increasing greenhouse gas emissions in passenger car transport are standards and taxes. Opposite to the CO2 emissions standards for new cars which have been implemented at the EU level, fiscal policies implemented in EU countries are determined at the national level and are different across EU countries. In this paper we have discussed advantages and problems related to the implemented policy measures as well as interactions between different measures. Keywords: passenger cars, policy, fuel tax, standards, rebound.
