With the advent of Euro 7, many car manufacturers had warned that the new emissions standards would could "condemn" some A and B segment models. Carlos Tavares, for example, had raised an alarm by stating that the new rules could have a significant impact on Italian production, with the Panda being at risk.< /p>
Also the CEO of Skoda, Klaus Zellmer, had raised an alarm about the impact of his company's production, stating that adapting the Fabia to the new emissions standards would lead to the car costing too much, making it much less attractive on the market. More in general, however, ACEA, the association representing European car manufacturers, had more repeatedly reiterated that with Euro 7, car costs would have risen by 2,000 euros, making many models, especially those in the A and B segments, much less attractive from a commercial point of view.

It's true. that the European Council has expressed for a much larger position soft. However, the European Parliament has yet to express itself and it cannot be exclude the possibility of returning to the original rules. Moreover, Vavassori, president of Anfia, had underlined just a few days ago that the vote on Euro 7 had gone in the right direction but that it was too early to claim victory given that the path is still very complicated.
