AECC key messages on Euro 7

AECC is fully committed to the climate objectives of the EU aiming to have zero-emission transport by 2050, as laid out in the European Green Deal.

AECC supports an ambitious proposal for future Euro 7 emission legislation for light- and heavy-duty vehicles to further decrease road traffic pollutant emissions with advanced emission control systems.

The upcoming Euro 7 Regulation is expected to become a world leading emission legislation for pollutant emissions in real-world operation.

Euro 7 should embrace an all-inclusive strategy in a technology- and fuel-neutral context, ensuring all powertrain technologies contribute to the EU’s Green Deal long-term goals.

The application of Euro 7 will allow hybrid ICE vehicles to achieve ultra-low pollutant emissions in all driving conditions.

A holistic approach to control pollutant emissions over the lifetime of the vehicle is needed. A ‘total system approach’ considering the vehicle as a single system and not focusing on single vehicle components is required.

Swift adoption of Euro 7 is welcomed to enable the innovation in emission control technologies.

AECC has completed three demonstration programmes showing how emission control technologies achieve ultra-low pollutant emissions. Selected material on the demo programmes can be found here: light-duty diesel, light-duty gasoline and heavy-duty diesel.

AECC has also published Euro 7 position and a technical note.

State-of-play of Euro 7

The European Commission Euro 7 proposal is expected soon.
This proposal will go through the ordinary legislative procedure under the Lisbon Treaty in the European Parliament and the European Council.
