Rota 2030 replaces the expired Inovar-Auto Programme. However, the energy efficiency goals stipulated in Inovar-Auto, to be reached in 2017, remain valid until 2022. From 2023 onwards, a new minimum reduction of consumption compared to 2017 levels will be required. Targets differ per vehicle category: • 11% for cars and light commercial vehicles • 4.9% for 4x4 vehicles and large SUVs • 8.6% for light trucks or for vehicles up to 12 passengers.
