Italy: ‘Euro 7 emissions requirements in danger, could block it’

Italy: 'Euro 7 emissions requirements in danger, could block it'

The new Euro 7 emission requirements that the European Commission wants to introduce in mid-2025 are under heavy fire from various angles. Various manufacturers have now asked for a postponement and the trade association ACEA has already turned against it several times. Last month, the ACEA outlined that the requirements would cost car manufacturers a lot of money, while it would ultimately only apply to a small part of the European car fleet. From Italy, which previously also fought for an exception for synthetic fuels by 2035, there is now combative language about the complete blocking of the Euro 7 requirements. Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Infrastructure and Transport, Matteo Salvini, now says he has “the numbers” to persuade countries that do not yet want to block Euro 7 requirements to do so. Reuters reports that. “We are now a blocking minority, we want to become a majority,” said Salvini, who indicates that in addition to Italy, France, Poland, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Slovakia are already over. Salvini calls Euro 7 ‘a leap in the dark’.
