Concerns ban according to Euro 7
VW manager warns: for low earners there will soon be no more cars
Manufacturer / assembly With new CO2 limit values and regulations, many small cars could threaten

The new emissions standard Euro 7 is further struggled in the background. Daimler and VW are already warning: New cars would soon only come with expensive electrical and hybrid drives. Driving is priceless for low earners – or will soon be real "Volks-Stromer"?
The discussion about new exhaust gas standards and CO2 limit values in the EU continues. A few months ago, among other things, Site had a leaking plans that provide for the end of internal combustion engines . Exhaust gas standards by Brussels should be tightened to pressure on pressure from influential lobby organizations such as the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) so that the manufacturers can only build and sell electric cars in the EU.
Euro 7 standard prefers electric cars with computing tricks
This is accommodating on electric cars specialized manufacturers such as Tesla because the EU prefers the electricity in the fleet balance with a rake trick: Your CO2 balance is always counted with zero grams, no matter how the electricity necessary for charging is really produced. A two -ton Tesla with 700 hp is therefore much more environmentally friendly than a small car with 60 hp petrol engine – even if the current is obtained for charging the Tesla made of coal .
For petrol and diesel vehicles, on the other hand, the Euro 7 exhaust gas standard would probably mean that. A representative of Daimler has now told the business magazine "Business Insider", that the scenarios currently discussed in Brussels "technically not representable" be.
The sticking point at the planned euro 7 rules is above all the so-called boundary conditions of the real operating measurements (RDE) of exhaust gases in road traffic, which have been part of the approval since the currently valid emissions standard Euro 6 D.
Clove The EU wants new RDE tests ("Real Drive Emissions") With the Euro 7 emissions standard, reduce the pollutant emissions to zero-according to the engine experts, a thing of the impossibility
Because all systems for exhaust gas aftertreatment, such as modern SCR catalysts for diesel vehicles, need a certain operating temperature to achieve an optimal cleaning effect. The first kilometers after the engine start are therefore produced more exhaust gases, which are almost completely reduced after a short time. That is why Euro 6D vehicles also achieve extremely low pollutant emissions such as nitrogen oxides (NOx).
Contrary to the real use of everyday life of most cars, the Euro 7 emissions standard should now not only map all extreme situations, but also prescribe an almost complete reduction in pollutants there from the first few meters, for example in the following situations:
- Extremely low temperatures
- Full throttle trips
- High journeys
"This is technically impossible and everyone knows the", said the head of the VDA auto industry association, Hildegard Muller, as early as December 2020. This would make the planned tightening of a ban on cars with combustion engines.

It is still unclear whether the measurement edge conditions will become part of the new regulation. According to information from site, there is another aspect with which the ICCT tries to torpedo the combustion engines. Accordingly, an attempt is made to establish a new limit value over the methane emissions of petrol engines in tiny quantities.
New rules only apply in 2026
The rules that have not yet been finalized only apply in 2026. But already now manufacturers would probably no longer develop their combustion engines or only to a very small extent if the norm comes as planned. In anticipation of the new rules, Daimler and BMW have already decided to develop new internal combustion engines in China in the future.

"After a meeting of the EU consultant committee AGVES in Brussels last week, the manufacturers analyzed which consequences Euro 7 would have in the currently recommended design from 2026. In particular, the technical details of the EU7 regulation would decide whether a combustion engine will still be able to approval and approved in the future. What the experts have been able to decipher so far arouses the fears in the industry that the introduction of EU7 could become a ‘burner ban through the back door’, explains Daimler", so the "Business Insider".

"Mobility brake for low earners"
Volkswagen also assumes that the new rules would end even for many hybrid cars. So far, gasoline and diesel cars have reached so-called "Mild hybrid systems" The current limit values and consumption standards. With EU7 it would be different. "We fear that a 48-volt system will not be sufficient," said a high-ranking VW manager "Business Insider"."The installation of a larger, supportive electric motor is disproportionately expensive, according to the assessment in the VW group. The additional costs for the technical upgrade would amount to several thousand euros per vehicle. Such sums would have an impact on the sales figures for smaller models. Small cars would lose their cost advantage and thus also customers. The VW environment therefore speaks of an impending mobility brake for low-wage earners", Reports the portal further.
The dying of the economical small cars
In fact, the range of small, actually economical and therefore environmentally friendly entry-level cars is fairly thinned out. Fiat only offers the Fiat 500 as an expensive electric version. The same applies to the Volkswagen Group for the mini class around the VW Up and perhaps even the larger polo in the future. Opel has stopped the Karl and Adam models, the smallest model is currently the Corsa.

Come the Stromer for everyone?
The exciting question remains whether the electric drive can simply replace today’s gasoline and diesel models in all price and vehicle classes. At least of that, lobby clubs like the ICCT go out and recommend putting everything on the electric card. Some manufacturers move with them, but not others.Volkswagen only wants to have a large part of his vehicles driven electrically before 2030 and also promises entry-level models with an electric motor. Cars like the ID1 or ID2 would then correspond to today’s VW e-up or Polo, just electrical. Such vehicles would be for around 10.000 to 15.000 euros can be represented – but so far only provided that there are still high purchase bonuses and tax advantages for Stromer in the future. In addition, a mini-streak of this price range would only fulfill basic requests because of the space and range and the buyers would be dependent on having a loading option near their apartment at any time.
