German industry braces as EU car emissions rules support

German industry braces as EU car emissions rules support
Brussels - EU diplomats unanimously supported on Friday the world's toughest carbon dioxide emission standards for new cars, the German automaker said would be a huge challenge.

Diplomatic recognition by all 28 EU Member States followed an agreement earlier this week, Germany's refusal, ended months of dispute over an earlier compromise deal.

It is expected, followed by a vote in the plenary of the European Parliament in January and then the approval by EU governments. Then it will be right.

The previous agreement in June called for a limit of 95 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre of the EU fleet by 2020. This week delayed the full implementation by one year.

It changes the rules flexibility, German luxury automakers such as Daimler and BMW, whose Emissionen are higher than those of smaller, lighter car manufacturers like Fiat to allow more leeway.

Europe has 130 grams of C02 per kilometer on average across the EU fleet so far maximum by 2015, a goal of many manufacturers are already meeting or close to it.

But Germany's VDA auto industry association said that the implementation of the new fuel efficiency would act "Require enormous effort" by manufacturers and suppliers.

It said the corresponding U.S. standard was 121 g/km by 2020, and China was 117 g / km.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose Partei received money from BMW, took up the cause of the big German automakers, declare protected German jobs and persuaded to agree to the other EU States, the June agreement to scrap.

Environmentalists and consumer groups have lambasted, weaker Germany the proposals that reduce CO2 emissions to reduce heating costs.

British consultancy Cambridge Econometrics estimated that Europe around 70 billion euros (95.3 billion$) save on oil would imported this 95 g/km target in the entire EU fleet.
