Forster called for action on a reasonable, results-based, pan-European CO2 policy and said:
“GM Europe is committed to working constructively with policy makers to support EU strategies that will quickly reduce the impact of CO2 emissions for cars.”
He also hopes CO2 policies will stimulate the car market.
“For any policy to be successful, it must enable the design and manufacture of cars that are both desirable and affordable. If the CO2 policy slows or even kills demand for new vehicles, the policy actions will have failed completely by leaving the older, higher-polluting cars on the road. “
