The Potential Effect of Euro 7 on the Entire Automotive Industry

Although, as the name suggests, Euro 7 is meant to regulate the European car market, chances are the rest of the world will not go unaffected. The only question is how much of an impact it’ll have on other markets, suppliers and engineers.

In mid-November, The European Commission (EC) introduced their proposal for Euro emission regulations, stating that all new cars and vans that are sold in the EU from 2035 cannot emit any CO2. This clearly means that not only will local automakers have to make adjustments to their products gearing more towards electric vehicles, but manufacturers across the world will have to adjust accordingly. Cars from overseas and other continents have to adhere to the regulations in the EU to be able to be sold within the region.

With most emphasis going on the production of EVs, there’s an inevitable change taking place in the supply chain as well. The demand for specific car components will increase, as EVs rely on batteries and other components. All these updates need to be implemented to meet the criteria for electrification and zero-emission goals.

However, the effects will go beyond just automakers, as even tyre manufacturers will be impacted. If the proposal passes, they will need to adjust their products to meet the new standards and be allowed for sale on the EU market.

One thing’s for sure – if the new regulations are applied there’s a lot more adjustments and changes various players in the automotive sector across the world will have to make to keep their place on the EU car market.
