EUCAR Perspective on Sustainable Mobility

EUCAR is fully committed to achieving the Green Deal target of a climate-neutral continent by 2050. Our highest priority is to mitigate the impacts of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions from our products and operations. We develop sustainable mobility solutions, by means of energy and resource-efficient technologies that are carbon-neutral over the entire life cycle and contribute to an enhanced quality of life for European citizens. We develop processes that contribute to a circular economy while reducing the environmental footprint along the value chain. We constantly innovate mobility solutions and specifically the propulsion systems using today’s and...

EUCAR Perspective on Digitalisation of Road Transport

EUCAR is fully committed to achieving safer, cleaner, smarter and more efficient transport solutions. Digitalisation of Road Transport and its technologies will play a vital role in it: Supporting the Vision Zero targets set for 2050 by decreasing the number of road fatalities and accidents. Further reducing transport emissions and congestion, while ensuring inclusive mobility in particular for the elderly and people with disabilities. Enabling new mobility concepts shifting design and development from driver-centred to mobility-user-centred. The innovations through the Digitalisation of Road Transport will have a remarkable economic impact ensuring jobs and growth. We...

Perspective on Urban Mobility

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...

EUCAR Perspective on Commercial Vehicles

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...
