I try to practice English by reading newspapers so I found this headline 'Europe's cars to have speed limiters'

and I don't understand how they use the term of "to have" in this sentence, so could someone explain to me.

why does it have to use 'to have' instead of just 'have' or 'will have'

Thank you.

This is an elliptical construction that is used only in newspaper headlines. The complete sentence used to be: "Europe's cars are going to have speed limiters." Over time, the words "are going" were omitted in the newspaper business, for brevity, and now this is a standard construction used in newspaper headlines.

It stuck in my head for quite a long time, now I have an answer what's it and what's it for.

THANK YOU.
