towards a display of CO2 emissions

A draft decree wishes to display CO emissions2 on the Crit’Air sticker for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. An expected development for the 1is January 2022.

The Ministry of Ecological Transition has published a draft decree, posted for public consultation until July 9, which aims to change the Crit’Air sticker in order to identify the vehicles emitting the least CO2 in each class of the air quality certificate. This decision was taken within the framework of the proposals of the Citizen’s Climate Convention.

Crit’Air sticker: additional restrictions to come?

While the text does not call into question the current classification and its six Crit’Air sticker levels, ranging from 1 to 5 and crowned by a green sticker intended for electric and hydrogen vehicles, the proposed modification aims to display the level of emissions of CO2 on the sticker, for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles.

Indeed, the text proposes two thresholds of CO emissions2 by category of vehicle concerned:

  • The Threshold 1 would concern passenger cars emitting less than 95 g of CO2/ km according to the NEDC standard (less than 120 g according to the WLTP standard), and light commercial vehicles emitting less than 147 g of CO2/ km according to NEDC standard (less than 175 g according to WLTP standard)
  • The Threshold 2 would concern passenger cars and light commercial vehicles emitting less than 50 g of CO2/ km (according to NEDC or WLTP standard)

According to the Ministry of Ecological Transition, this additional distinction will make it possible to provide communities with a new lever to “decline a service offer”: reduced-price parking, circulation in reserved lanes, etc. Or in other words: allow penalties even more motorists who do not meet the criteria imposed, particularly strict and effectively excluding the vast majority of vehicles currently in circulation.
