BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission is set to propose tighter carbon emissions standards for new cars, according to a draft proposal, in a move that is likely to divide the auto industry.

The proposal, expected to be made public next month, would make binding a 2020 goal to lower carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to an average of 95 grams per kilometer (g/km).

So far it is only a provisional, non-binding goal and compares with an existing binding target of 130 g/km.
