The year 2022 proved to be a turning point for e-mobility in Europe. The market share of EV sales surpassed the 10% threshold in Europe, cementing the trend of European citizens converting to zero-emission mobility. But while light-duty EVs are being rolled out rapidly, we are also witnessing the uptake of the heavy-duty vehicles market, with new players and legacy truck OEMs accelerating the switch to zero-emission. 

On the regulatory front, the Fit for 55 package is beginning to bear fruit, with several files having been politically agreed upon in the Council and the European Parliament. These notably include CO2 emission standards for cars and vans, which are set to end sales of internal combustion engine vehicles by 2035 and were approved by all European institutions. Other dossiers, such as the Regulation on Alternative Fuels Infrastructure (AFIR) and the Directive on the Energy Performance of Buildings, have been slightly bumpier and are still under discussion. 

While there is still work on these files, market players and policymakers are implementing new catalysts to push the road transport sector to accelerate its transition towards zero emissions through new technological advancements and legislative proposals.

Against this background, the event will bring together decision-makers and data analysts to take stock of what happened this year and what it means for road transport, as well as discuss what is next on the European agenda and what trends we can expect in the coming years.

Questions addressed will include:

  • What are European expected sales trends in both the light-duty and heavy-duty EV segments?
  • What is the situation in the secondhand EV market, and how can this market be boosted?
  • How can Europe make it easier for people to switch to zero-emission mobility?
  • What next after the CO2 emission standards for cars and vans?
  • How do we ensure the enablers of e-mobility are fit for purpose and work across the EU?
