Answer given by Mr Breton
on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-001706/2020

1. The European Commission is maintaining an ongoing dialogue with stakeholders, throughout the whole automotive value chain, in order to directly assess the short-term effects of the crisis. The Commission also carries out economic intelligence work in order to have the best possible estimates of medium-term effects to prepare an effective European recovery strategy from this crisis.

2. The Commission is monitoring capacity to comply with the regulatory deadlines, in particular through its regular dialogue with the automotive industry.

3. The coronavirus crisis is likely to have significant social, economic and financial consequences for the automotive industry and any new policy or regulatory action will have to be carefully considered. The Commission is committed to upholding the ambition under the Green Deal. Indeed, the transition towards clean and autonomous vehicles will undoubtedly continue to be at the heart of the economic recovery of the European automotive industry, and the Commission will do all it can to ensure that this strategic sector will continue to be globally competitive.
