Key messages

FES needs to be applied to all new vehicles, with light vehicles (GVM of 3.5t and lower – MA, NA, MC) ASAP and trucks, buses, and heavier vehicles to follow, FES should be the mechanism of the initial transition, ahead of bringing in a complete ban on new emitting vehicle sales (ICE) by 2035.
