In Europe, asked to postpone the introduction of the Euro 6 standard

The main reason for the postponement request was the coronavirus pandemic, which forced many to adjust production plans.

The European automotive industry asks to postpone the entry into force of the law on new environmental standards Euro 6d in the Old World. ACAA and its chairman, Mike Manley, sent a statement to the Commissioner of the European Union. Recall that the new strict requirements should come into force on January 1, 2021. Based on the rules, many diesel cars will be banned in Europe from next year.

According to ASAA, the outbreak of coronavirus greatly influenced the production plan of almost all companies and forced to postpone the process of testing and receiving OTTC. One of the main reasons is also 600 thousand produced cars that will not meet the requirements starting January 1, 2021. Manufacturers must adapt them to new conditions, but to do so in such a short time will be extremely problematic.

Otherwise, some models will have to be abandoned, which may lead to new staff reductions. The deferral petition also gives the experience of China and Japan, which took such a step.
