COVID-19: ACEA letter to Commissioner Breton
The shutdown of production and sales imposed by EU member states to fight COVID‐19 has caused a significant build‐up of stocks at automobile manufacturers, importers and dealers. These vehicles meet current emission standards but not the new standards that will enter into force in the coming months.
The President of ACEA addressed a letter on this topic to European Commissioner Breton to seek support in order to avoid having to stockpile newly-produced vehicles or to stop production.
