TRT Trasporti e Territorio (Milano) The transport sector is facing big challenges, such as the need for reducing greenhouse gases and the pressure on fossil fuels price. Tackling such challenges requires structural changes and policy should play a steering role. Therefore, transport policy measures should be assessed for their wider impact on the economy and the environment. This paper presents the strategic model ASTRA-IT and its application for the analysis of the investment in developing innovative vehicles. The several results produced by the model suggest that investing in innovative vehicles can have positive effects on the economy, but the environmental impact can be small.
