The aim of this Policy Brief published by the Institut Mobilités en Transition is to identify the potential gains that could be made in reducing greenhouse gas emissions over the next decade as a result of changes in the fleet of internal combustion vehicles on the road in France. The analysis is based on a reconstruction of the consumption history of new vehicles and then of the fleet between 2012 and 2022. The model is then used in a forward-looking manner, incorporating known technological developments to date and supported assumptions for the expected renewal of the fleet. The analysis provides a clearer picture of trends in average vehicle fuel consumption over 10 years and the corresponding emissions.
