NDO/VNA – All types of new cars in Vietnam must meet Euro 5 emission standards from January 1, 2022 under a decision issued by the Prime Minister, Vietnam Register said.

Cars and motorcycles are among major sources of emissions like carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxide, particle pollution, and toxins in fuel, such as benzene. These cause air pollution, especially urban air pollution, directly affecting people’s health.

Euro 3 exhaust emission standards have been applied on two-wheeled motorcycles since January 1, 2017, while cars using petrol and other fuels, excluding diesel, applied Euro 4 standards.

From January 1, 2018, diesel vehicles were required to follow Euro 4 standards, while newly assembled or imported cars were requested to follow Euro 5 standards from next year.

The Vietnam Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (VAMA) said its members have been ready to follow the new roadmap.
