Luca de Meo, CEO of Renault Group, has been elected ACEA president from 2023 onwards. As of 1 January, Mr de Meo will take over the presidency from BMW’s CEO, Oliver Zipse, who has held the position for the last two years. The ACEA President is elected for a year-long term, once renewable, from the CEOs of its member companies – the major Europe-based car, van, truck and bus manufacturers.

“Looking ahead, we need Europe urgently to implement policies that fully support our decarbonisation goal, and enable us to face growing global competition”, commented Luca De Meo. “We welcome the work on a European Raw Materials Act, which should support the continent’s economic resilience and the shift to zero-emissions. Our industry is committed to investing heavily in e-mobility, and to securing value creation and jobs in Europe.”
“The Euro 7 proposal in its current shape – he added – would draw away massive human and financial resources from electrification, at the very time when other world regions are creating an attractive investment environment for zero-emissions mobility. ACEA will continue to advocate for a balance between what is good for the environment, what is good for Europe’s economy and what is good for society.”
