Diesel faced with the amendment to the Euro 6 standard

The standard Euro 7 could put an end to diesel in Europe

Unlike the United States, diesel-powered vehicles are very common in Europe. Euro 6 standard could change the situation by imposing strict restrictions on diesel vehicles.

Despite the automakers’ efforts to try and develop technologies to make diesel engines cleaner, sales are in sharp decline throughout Europe and in France where the Government has once again showed its determination to fight against diesel vehicles.

It is still early to say it is the beginning of the end of the glory years of the diesel, but it is clear that it will still take time to overcome this crisis which started to impact diesel last September.

Diesel in the European fleet

Currently, diesel engines account for about 55% of the European market, 50% in the United Kingdom, 70% in Spain and 65% France. Over time, analysts forecast the decline of these strong numbers in favour of gasoline and electric. The Volkswagen scandal also wants to play a role in the drop of diesel sales. In November 2015, Volkswagen said they had found “irregularities” in the measurement tests of carbon dioxide emission levels that could potentially affect about 800,000 cars in Europe. This comes right after investigations carried out by Environmental Protection Agency in September 2015.
