The new Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) in Terrassa established the action plan for 2016-21. It incorporates a group of measures aimed at reducing the accident rate, noise pollution and energy consumption, which allows for an improvement in environmental quality and the habitability of the streets. Also wants to increase the autonomy of the children, the elderly and disabled people.
Clean and energy-efficient vehicles, such as hybrid/electric buses and cars, aim to reduce greenhouse and other pollutant emissions, fuel consumption and fossil fuel dependency.
Exhaust gas treatment systems, alternative drive trains and the use of alternative fuels and energy storage systems can improve the environmental record of vehicles. Besides technical interventions, promotional and procurement initiatives can accelerate the uptake of low-emission vehicles.
