Hungary Backs Compromise Over Euro 7 Engine Regulation
Hungary, together with Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia, have pressed for a compromise over the Euro 7 emissions regulation at a meeting of European Union industry ministers in Brussels, the Ministry of Economic Development said in a release on its website.
Under the compromise on the position taken by the council on the Euro 7 regulation, Euro 6 test conditions and emissions limits would remain in place for private passenger autos and vans, and compliance deadlines would be pushed back.
The ministry said the proposal in its original, stricter form would have been "extraordinarily unfavorable" for the automotive industry and "put tens of thousands of Hungarian jobs at risk."
