Gasoline and diesel car prices are said to skyrocket!

SHAFAQNA TURKEY – The Brussels-based European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) has released a statement on the Euro 7 emission standards to be applied to cars and light commercial vehicles in July 2025 and to heavy duty vehicles in July 2027.

The application stated that the cost of one vehicle under the new regulations was about 2,000 euros for cars and vans with an internal combustion engine, and about 12,000 euros for diesel trucks and buses.

It is noted that these figures are significantly higher than the Euro 7 impact estimates made by the EU Commission of 180-450 euros for cars and vans and 2800 euros for trucks and buses.

Noting that the European automotive industry supports further emission reductions due to the climate, environment and health benefits, the statement said: “However, the Euro 7 proposal is not the right way to do this. Because Euro 7 will have an extremely low environmental impact at an extremely high cost.” assessment has been made.

In addition to direct costs, Euro 7 will also have indirect costs such as higher fuel consumption.

Euro 7 standards

The EU Commission announced its proposal for Euro 7 standards last year to reduce pollution from new cars sold in the EU, in line with the European Green Deal.

The new Euro 7 standard, which is expected to come into force in 2025, sets the same rules for diesel and gasoline engines and further reduces emissions.

In order for the proposal prepared by the EU Commission to come into force, it must be approved by the European Parliament (EP) and Member States.

On the other hand, a group of countries led by Italy said they were against the new standards.
