The European Commission might have been too optimistic in their estimates about the added cost to vehicles due to Euro 7 regulations. A new study commissioned by the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA), suggests the actual numbers are 4 to 10 times higher depending on the vehicle segment.
More specifically, according to the Frontier Economics study, the direct cost per vehicle for ICE-powered cars and vans is €1,862 ($1,997) for petrol and €2,629 ($2,820) for diesel, which are 10 and 5 times higher respectively compared to the official estimates. Similarly, the Euro 7 upgrade cost for trucks and buses with diesel engines is a staggering €11,707 ($12,555) per vehicle, or 4 times higher than the number originally suggested by the European Commission.
