BRUSSELS, Dec 19 (Reuters) - The European Commission agreed a plan on Wednesday to cut car emissions of carbon dioxide from 2012, with fines imposed on manufacturers for non-compliance, the EU executive said in a statement. Fines for excess car CO2 output would be phased in over four years, the statement said, starting at 20 euros ($28.80) for each excess gram per kilometre in 2012, and rising to 95 euros g/km in 2015.
