The project runs from April 2021-March 2024. The project plan.
Our main goal is an explicit
evaluation of the effect of the bonus-malus scheme on carbon emissions, whose reduction is the
ultimate objective of the Swedish Climate Act. There are two work packages (WPs).
- WP1: We evaluate the effect of the policy on the outcome it most directly
targets, the share of high and low emission vehicles in the new car market (and the implied
reduction in carbon and non-carbon emissions).
- WP2: We evaluate the effects of the policy on household decisions in
the entire car market (including both new and used vehicles) and with regard to mileage.
