China to intoduce Chinese 4 emission standards across China from July 1st

Share Our Knowledge With Your Friends, Contacts And Co-Workers

Chinese5 emission standards are about to become the standard for all cars sold across China from July 1st according to media reports. The Chinese 4 emission standard is on par with Euro4 and this is the fourth time that the Chinese authorities have pushed forward with such a plan. Greenhouse emissions and improving the environment have become a major issue for Chinese authorities as a growing middle class become more self assure and critical of their surroundings. The government first pushed Chinese 1 emission standards in 2000 and moved again to Chinese 3 in 2004, Chinese 3 being roughly on par with Euro3. Chinese 4 standards were supposed to be introduced in 2010 but have been delayed until 2011, Beijing moved ahead of its own accord and instituted Euro4 emissions standards before the start of the Olympic games in 2008.

It’s certainly a good time for consumers to buy a car as dealerships will be rushing to empty their stocks of Chinese 3 emission standard cars before the July 1st deadline, which may go someway to bumping May sales ever so slightly.
