Law of orientation of mobility : what measures for company vehicles ?

The draft law on the orientation of mobility (LOM) will “mark a turning point in the way in which the mobilities are apprehended” in France, according to Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, secretary in charge of transport. It was adopted on 20 November in the national Assembly. He aims for a neutrality of land transport by 2050 with medium term objectives, such as reduction of 37.5% of the emissions of greenhouse gases by 2030 and a ban of sales of cars to fossil fuels décarbonnées by 2040. To achieve these goals, many measures have been put in place, some of which involve little or no understanding of the vehicle business.

The most impacting for the company vehicles is the mandatory greening of the fleet of over hundred vehicles of which the total weight allowed in load is less than or equal to 3.5 tons (article 26). A schedule indicates the percentages of progressive acquisition of vehicles with low emissions, from 1 January 2022 to 2030. These obligations also relate to those with a fleet of over one hundred mopeds and motorcycles light, of maximum power greater or equal to 1 kilowatt. Therefore, from 2022, the renewal of these fleets will have to rely on 10 % of vehicles with low emissions, and 20 % in 2024, up from 35% in 2027, and 50 % in 2030.

For vehicles designed and constructed for the carriage of goods whose permissible gross weight is greater than or equal to 2.6 tonnes, the obligation is applicable as from 1 January 2023. The size of the park of a enterprise takes into account vehicles managed by subsidiaries whose headquarters are located in France, as well as by institutions located in France. The data relating to the greening of the fleets will be made public by the services of the State in an open format to be used and exploited by an automated processing system.

The fleets of the public also…

The LOM also requires that the State and its institutions with a fleet of more than twenty motor vehicles for which the weight authorized in load is less than or equal to 3.5 tonnes, the acquisition of at least 50% of vehicles with low emissions. For local authorities, their groupings and the national enterprises, the greening will be gradual : 20 % until June 2021 and 30 % from July 2021. As of January 1, 2026, vehicles with very low emissions will represent 37.4% of vehicles acquired by, or used on the annual renewal.

A package of sustainable mobility

Another measure, not mandatory, may also affect the management of parks. The LOM provides employers, private and public, to contribute to the costs of commuting of their employees carpool or bike. The package of sustainable mobility, which will replace the mileage bike, will be able to raise up to € 400 per year free of tax and social contributions. The package will be used in conjunction with the participation of the employer in the subscription of public transport, which remains déplafonnée, up to a maximum of € 400 a year. The State is seeking exemplary widespread implementation of the package of sustainable mobility to all of its agents by 2020, up to $ 200 per year.

The low emission zones, ex-areas of restricted circulation, must also be taken into account by fleet managers. As a reminder, these areas allow communities to limit traffic to vehicles that are less pollutants according to different criteria. Scope defined, schedule or type of vehicle, free to they of decide the.s criterion.s of application. Traffic restrictions during pollution peaks may be taken automatically by the prefects. The law of orientation of mobility has the aim of facilitating their deployment.

To this day, after an appeal by the government, 19 French government have announced that it is to engage in the creation or strengthening of an EPZ by 2020 and 23 in total are involved, representing more than 17 million people affected. All agglomerations over 100 000 inhabitants will be required to investigate the feasibility of this solution.
