German Automakers Fighting with Italy and France on Emission Regulation

If the Germans get their way an S-Class would have to reduce emissions less than a Fiat 500 by percentage.

, are fighting with Italian and French automakers on how future emissions regulations should be calculated. 

The EU Commission has already passed a rule that European automakers must have fleet average CO2 emissions of 130g/km of CO2. The EU commission proposes that all cars should have to reduce their emissions by 60% based on their emissions levels in 2009.

The German automakers have been pushing for a higher percentage reduction to emissions, but that the figures are adjusted by the weight of a vehicle. That would mean that heavier vehicles would have to reduce their emissions by a lower percentage than lighter ones. Germany, especially those three manufactures, owns a much larger stake of the large car market than Fiat or PSA. 

"We have to not shift the burden to smaller carmakers. This time we are not moving. We can keep on arguing," said FiatFiatFiatItaly, 1899 > present159 models

CEO Sergio Marchionne. 

Marchionne is referring to the last time that the EU Commission attempted to reduce emissions, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nichlas Sarcozy had to meet to negotiate. 

The EU Commission has not published its proposal on how the percentage reduction and how it will be calculated. When it does, expect one side to be very unhappy.
