05.25.2020
This interactive map shows the impact of the coronavirus / COVID-19 crisis on the production of motor vehicles for each of the 27 EU member states plus the UK.
Status on: 25/05/2020

EU-wide production losses due to factory shutdowns amount to at least 2,435,824 motor vehicles so far. This figure includes passenger cars, trucks, vans, buses and coaches. The average shutdown duration is 30 working days at the moment. Production losses are obviously set to increase if shutdowns are extended or additional plants are brought to a halt.

Transport: increasing oil consumption and greenhouse gas emissions hamper EU progress towards environment and climate objectives
Mobility plays a key role in the EU economy. However, the EU transport sector still relies heavily on fossil fuels and is responsible for one quarter of Europe’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions — a share that keeps growing. In addition, the sector is a significant source of air pollution despite significant progress achieved since 1990, especially of particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2), as well as the main source of environmental noise in Europe. Current efforts to limit the sector’s environmental and climate impacts in Europe are not sufficient to meet the EU’s long-term climate and environmental policy objectives.
