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.

4 priority areas of the European Automotive Council are to focus on:
- The Environmental Friendly Vehicle (EFV) Scheme
- Vehicle emission
