A new report (“Future of Mobility Roadmap”) published this week by the Oxford’s Smith School of Enterprise and Environment provides great insight into the challenges and opportunities for future green transport. The Times picked up the report by focussing on the false hopes raised by car producers for an emissions-free transport in the future: “Car companies are raising false hopes of emission-free motoring in order to continue profiting from large, fuel-hungry vehicles, according to a study”.

I would hope the report could be required reading for new transport commissioner Kallas and his Directorate general for Transport.
