EU fines all car manufacturers for harmful emissions

EU fines all car manufacturers for harmful emissions

June 27, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The other day, the representative of the European Commission came up with a proposal to fine unscrupulous car manufacturers.

According to the European Environment Agency, over the past three and a half years, the amount of harmful emissions into the atmosphere in the EU has been steadily increasing. As a result of the study, the European Commission said it would take harsh measures against car manufacturers if they did not reduce emissions.

The statement said that companies will have to take accelerated measures to improve the fuel economy of cars, as well as accelerate the production of cars with zero or low emissions. According to experts, in order not to get a fine from the European Commission, car manufacturers should reduce the harmful emissions of their cars by 22%.

It is believed that the emission of harmful substances increased with the onset of the popularity of crossover and SUVs. In addition, minibuses are very popular in Europe, which also affects emissions. The European Commission strongly recommended that EU member states encourage residents to buy hybrids and electric cars by investing in their production and infrastructure.
