Industry group urges provinces against rush to enact tougher emission standards
Automotive News China | 2019/6/11

The China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, a government-backed industry trade group, called on domestic provinces that havent adopted State 6 vehicle emission standards not to enact the new rules ahead of schedule. 

Widespread adoption of the new standards, equivalent to Euro 6 rules, in China would make more consumers reluctant to buy new vehicles and aggravate inventory pressure on car dealers, the association warned in an open letter last week. 

Taking their cue from the Blue Sky Protection campaign Beijing launched last year, four municipalities C Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin and Chongqing -- and 11 provinces in China have pledged to enact the new standards on July 1, one year ahead of the original schedule set by the Ministry of Environment Protection. 

The four cities and provinces accounted for 65 percent of China's new light-vehicle sales in 2018.  

Upgrading the emissions standards to State 6 from State 5, which are similar to Euro 5, has been a major cause of the prolonged downturn in Chinas new-car market in the past few months, according to the association.
