Euro 7: Legislative time frame and parameters
The emission standard expected to formally succeed Euro 6d sometime before 2025, will demand more advanced powertrain technologies and aftertreatment
Each stage of emission and fuel economy regulations and standardization of robust compliance testing procedures has consistently led to further advancement in powertrain technology. Particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions have fallen by more than 95% between Euro 1 and Euro 6 standards. Emission regulations are set to get more stringent with the implementation of Euro 7 standards, though no official framework or guidance exists yet concerning timing or content. Increasingly advanced and flexible aftertreatment technologies in both gasoline and diesel vehicles are expected be necessary to comply with the next emission standard, which is expected to be officially announced by the end of 2020.
