On June 28, China officially released the China VI emission standard for new heavy-duty vehicles. If effectively implemented, it will transition all new heavy-duty vehicles in China to soot-free emission levels.
Even though targets for low- and zero-emission vehicles are an innovative approach for EU standards, they could undercut the climate benefit of the regulation. Fortunately, with some slight modifications EU regulators could effectively promote both fuel efficiency and electrification.
