European Automotive Council (EAC)
The European Automotive Council represents the European passenger car and commercial vehicle manufacturers in Hong Kong. It aims to bring forward proposals and be a partner to the government of Hong Kong, working together towards a safer, greener, more efficient and more competitive automotive sector. Contributors of the Council are European vehicle manufacturers, their subsidiaries and/or representative offices.
4 priority areas of the European Automotive Council are to focus on:
The Environmental Friendly Vehicle (EFV) Scheme
Introduction of latest driver assistance systems and the new safety systems
New energy vehicles and the smart mobility
European automotive brands in Hong Kong account for more than 50% of all licensed passenger cars. European brands are also represented strongly in heavier truck segments (>16 tonnes) as well as accounting for more than 50% of non-franchise buses and nearly 100% of franchise bus sales.
