Moreover, the current pandemic situation has spiked online shopping owing to health concerns. According to Adobe Analytics, consumers in the USA spent $2.2 billion on November 2nd, 2020, a 31% increase in year-over-year growth, and another $2.0 billion on November 3rd, 2020, which was a 27% year-over-year increase.

The new regulations focus on reducing average CO2 emission by 31% for LCVs by 2030 as compared to 2021. The commission will impose an excess emission premium on the manufacturer of $112.15 (€95) for each g/km that is exceeded for all registered LCV if the manufacturer exceeds a specific emissions target. The strict CO2 emission regulations impact the manufacturing expenditure and limit the growth of the light commercial vehicles market.
