Euro-7 norms: The shifting dynamics of the European automotive industry
The EU's recent Euro-7 emissions compromise navigates a delicate balance between environmental objectives and industry concerns, sparking discussions on the actual cost of achieving cleaner air and the future trajectory of the automotive sector.
In a vote held earlier in November, the European Parliament endorsed a modified Euro-7 emissions regulation, bringing testing procedures for new cars more in line with Euro-6 standards. While praised by some as a middle ground, apprehensions linger regarding the potential relaxation of car pollution standards. The members of the European Parliament (MEPs) will begin discussions with the EU government to finalize the new rules.
