ACEA again urges the European Commission to adopt a top‐down approach to clearly define the objectives for potential Euro 7/VII emission standard proposals that should aim to tackle air pollution coming from on‐road transport in the most proportional and cost‐effective way.
The European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) represents the 16 major Europe-based car, van, truck and bus manufacturers, so its members will be the ones in the frontline when it comes to implementing any potential new Euro 7 and Euro VII regulations. Therefore, ACEA and its members have duly attended all of the Advisory Group on Vehicle Emission Standards (AGVES) meetings and contributed to all of the many consultations launched either by the European Commission or by its CLOVE consortium.
This new ACEA position paper provides a concise summary of the main issues. The paper also sets out ACEA’s considerations vis‐à‐vis the ongoing discussions and recent developments seen in AGVES on 27 October 2020, where CLOVE presented more concrete proposals and scenarios for Euro 7/VII emission limits and testing procedures.
ACEA and its members remain fully committed to constructively contribute to all Euro 7/VII discussions and to the AGVES process and are keen to engage further with the Commission and stakeholders to fully detail its views.
