Jahn: Euro 7 could cost 10,000 people in CR their job

(CIANEWS) - The introduction of the EU Euro 7 emission standard would have a negative impact on hundreds of thousands of jobs in Europe. Martin Jahn, a member of the board of directors responsible for sales and marketing of ŠKODA AUTO and vice president of the Association of Industry and Transport, said this on Czech Television. In the case of its introduction, the car company will be forced to close the operation of one hall and three thousand people will lose their jobs. However, including suppliers, it will affect 10,000 employees. From an economic point of view, it will no longer be possible to produce and sell the smaller Fabia, Scala and Kamiq models. He considers the terms contained in the standard to be unfulfillable and its basic parameters unclear in many respects. The standard should apply from 2025.
