Solar Charger

Introduction

Stringent EU fleet CO2 emission targets for 2020 and beyond put OEMs under pressure. Achieving limits gets more difficult due to new drive cycle and larger vehicles (SUV share). Off Cycle Credits are calculated based on formulas adopted by the EU Commission resulting in CO2 benefits (applicable for ICE – vehicle with Internal Combustion Engine). Solar roof gains up to 7g CO2/km credits. At existing EU and US Eco Innovations Solar is the highest single Eco Innovation to avoid penalty payments (95 EUR/g).
