Euro 7 emissions proposal will result in a £10,250 (€12,000) increase in the price of diesel trucks, according to a study by Frontier Economics.
The direct cost increases would be 4 to 10 times higher than those cited by the European Commission, far greater than the £2,400 (€2,800) additional impact estimated by the European Commission.
These estimates consist of the direct manufacturing costs only and won’t necessarily correlate to the purchase price of a new vehicle.
“The European auto industry is committed to further reducing emissions for the benefit of the climate, environment, and health. However, the Euro 7 proposal is simply not the right way to do this, as it would have an extremely low environmental impact at an extremely high cost,” stated Sigrid de Vries, director general of the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA).
