Euro 7 approved. It means huge changes for drivers

The European Council approved the European Parliament's position on the adoption of the Euro 7 standard. What exactly will change?

It is certain that the new Euro 7 standard will apply in the European Union. This happened because the European Council approved the position of the European Parliament. The new regulations will enter into force 20 days after their publication in the Official Journal, but producers have several years to adapt to the new requirements.

Euro 7 standards – what will change?

First of all, the regulation maintains the applicable emission limits provided for in the Euro 6 standard for passenger cars, but at the same time introduces stricter requirements for particulate matter in exhaust gases. In addition, greenhouse gas and dust emissions from brake discs and pads, as well as microparticles from tires, will also be controlled. The standard also introduces efficiency requirements for electric motors.

One of the most important changes is the introduction of PM10 particulate emission limits. So far, the only restrictions required were those for larger PM23 particles, but numerous studies have shown that PM10 is a bigger problem in cars. The limits are 3 mg/km for electric cars, 7 mg/km for combustion, hybrid and hydrogen cars and 11 mg/km for large vans and delivery vehicles, respectively.

Importantly, exhaust gas purification standards are to be maintained in new cars for at least 10 years or until they travel 200,000 km. km.

In addition, Euro 7 introduces requirements for the efficiency of electric motors. These will have to retain at least 80 percent. capacity after 5 years or 100,000 miles. km and 72 percent capacity after 8 years or 160,000 km.

When will the new standards come into force? It depends on the type of car. For passenger cars and delivery vans up to 3.5 t from July 1, 2030 at the earliest, and for buses and trucks from July 1, 2031.
