Urban areas play a central role in the future development of Europe, specifically regarding our ambitions towards the green deal targets. For this reason, Horizon Europe dedicates one mission to support cities in accelerating their green and digital transformation. This Cities Mission aims at delivering 100 climate-neutral and smart cities by 2030, serving as innovation hubs for other cities to follow.
Cities come in various forms and sizes with different challenges. One solution does not fit all, and therefore we need to address the multiple needs that exist for users and citizens. However, mobility solutions are not designed for single cities. Future urban mobility solutions will be...
The European Council for Automotive Research and Development (EUCAR) is fully committed to the European Green Deal, making the EU a carbon-neutral, resource-efficient, sustainable, and competitive economy. Our highest priority is mitigating the impacts of climate change by significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions from mobility. We develop powertrain technologies with reduced direct and indirect pollutant emissions that contribute to an enhanced quality of life for EU citizens. This advanced technology portfolio will increase the competitiveness of the European automotive industry and maintain its position as the top employer in the EU.

Commercial vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, and they fulfil a wide range of functions within our society. Trucks and vans provide an efficient door-to-door mode of transport linking producers, businesses and consumers.
With the ambition to achieve a climate-neutral continent by 2050, we need a major societal transformation. This change will impact the whole ecosystem (i.e., citizens, businesses, technologies, and end-users) and demand reinventing the transport and mobility solutions for the decades to come. A systemic approach for mobility and the energy sector, with efficient, feasible and cost-effective renewable energy carriers and their sustainable production at economies of...
Key Statements for Sustainable Propulsion.
EUCAR is committed to supporting the targets of the 2015 Paris climate change conference, COP 21. →Our highest priority is to mitigate the impacts of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
EUCAR is committed to developing and providing sustainable powertrain technologies that contribute to an enhanced quality of life of the EU citizens. →We reduce direct and indirect pollutant emissions from road transport, starting with urban areas.
EUCAR strives to develop powertrain technologies that will advance the technological competitiveness of the European automotive industry and maintain its position as a significant employer...
The automotive industry is one of the most important growth engines for economic welfare in Europe. The full strength of industry should be used to address the mobility issues we see in European cities. Novel and advanced versions of the passenger car and the commercial vehicle – as the backbone of the European economy – will contribute to seamlessly integrated public transport solutions as well as improvements of the transport system at large.
This will contribute tremendously to societal, environmental, and economic welfare, job creation and growth of Europe. Superior solutions can be exported globally and thus help Europe to position itself as a world leader in innovation,...
EUCAR is committed to achieve safer, cleaner, smarter and more efficient transport solutions. Researching Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV) technologies will play a vital role in it:
CAV technologies will support the Vision Zero targets set for 2050 by decreasing the number of road fatalities and accidents.
CAV contributes to reducing transport emissions and congestion, while ensuring inclusive mobility for persons and goods.
CAV will provide individual mobility to all users; in particular elderly and people with disabilities.
CAV will have a remarkable economic impact ensuring long-term European growth and jobs.
CAV will enable new mobility concepts shifting...
