Volkswagen gets DKK 746 million. kroner for 0.75 grams of C02

The car brands that have not been able to meet the EU's requirements for CO2 emissions. Volkswagen, which wants to be allowed to emit more, is among them.

A number of car brands that have not been able to live up to the limit levels for CO2 emissions set by the EU in 2020 are now getting a proper punishment.

And although the exact sizes of the stalls are not yet publicly known, Volkswagen has previously acknowledged being among the car brands that missed the mark. And it costs.

It shows a settlement that Automotive News has seen.

According to the German car brand, it is currently worth 'over 100 million euros'. In Danish currency, this corresponds to DKK 746 million.

All because the brand from Wolfsburg emits 0.75 grams of CO2 too much per kilometres, to which the car brand's fleet is given up.

However, it is even worse for a brand like Suzuki. Because the Japanese came 3 grams per kilometers over the border, about 160 million euros must be handed over in stalls, when the number of stalls, as given per car, multiply the number of cars sold – 160,570 units. Or almost 1,000 euros per car.

According to the rules, a fine of 95 euros must be paid for each and every car that is registered within the EU. Brands that do not meet the rules must multiply the number of cars by the number of grams of CO2 they exceed the limit.

To avoid the stalls, several car brands have bought CO2 allowances from pure electric car brands. Something i.a. Tesla has made a fortune. But the production of plug-in hybrids has also made car brands' CO2 emissions look better. At least in the eyes of the EU.
