LCA in WTT and WTW: review and recommendations
Attributional and consequential LCA: Methodology overview, assessment and recommendations focusing on the JEC Well-to-Tank and Well-to-Wheel reports
JEC (JRC-EUCAR-CONCAWE) is a long-standing collaboration between the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, EUCAR and CONCAWE, in order to evaluate the energy use and GHG emissions related to engine and vehicle technologies, fuel qualities, and the interaction between them. The reference work in this collaboration is the Well-to-Wheels study, assessing the energy use and GHG emissions of road fuel and powertrain configurations in Europe today and in 2030. Currently, an update on...
EUCAR is committed to supporting the targets of the 2015 Paris climate change conference, COP 21. The highest priority is to mitigate the impacts of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. To achieve these goals EUCAR is committed to developing and providing sustainable powertrain technologies that contribute to an enhanced quality of life of the EU citizens.
The EUCAR experts from the members companies identified and formulated research needs for future batteries, improving the performance and efficiency of xEVs while ensuring the industrial and economic feasibility.

The European Council for Automotive Research & Development (EUCAR) has published the 2020 edition of the project book. The full document is available in electronic format to be able to update its contents during the upcoming year.
The EUCAR project book contains an overview of all the current research and innovation projects in our priority fields for ‘Safe and integrated mobility’, ‘Sustainable propulsion’, ‘Affordability and competitiveness’ and ‘Commercial vehicles’. All our projects are the result of combining forces in order to devise strategies and find solutions for a better society: improving the safety, efficiency and sustainability of the road transport to...
Automotive research and innovation delivering new era of mobility
The future of road transport is being redefined by digitalisation and automation.
This will change how we move from A to B, and the way vehicles are used, sold and owned in the future.
Connectivity will enable entirely new levels of cooperation between all players in the mobility sector, including vehicle operators, road users and authorities.
Brussels, 8 November 2019 – The incredible pace at which the automotive industry is transforming, and the key role that research and innovation (R&I) play in this, was highlighted at the EUCAR conference ‘Navigating a New Era of Mobility’ in...
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,...
