Yes, we have seen how well that worked. Perhaps we should try a reality-based approach, instead.

That is 18% below the 2007 level. But they can clearly do much more, and move faster. Commissioner-designate Hedegaard is right.

Take the VW Golf BlueMotion (Diesel) as an example. 2007 model = 135g/km / 2009 model = 99g/km. That’s a 27% improvement in two years (ie by 2009 rather than 2015!!!).
