GENEVA, SWITZERLAND AUTOSHOW – Carmakers push to electrify motors as emissions rules toughens


Carmakers at the Geneva Motor Show unveiled some of their hybrid and electric models as they go forward in implementing the EU’s plans to slash carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from vehicles.

The European Parliament and EU countries struck an agreement in December to cut emissions from cars by 37.5 percent by 2030, compared with 2021, and by 31 percent from vans.

Renault will introduce hybrid versions of its top-selling models as the European auto industry races to meet tightening emissions goals.
