The European Commission has insisted that it will adhere to plans to introduce tariffs on electric cars sent between the United Kingdom and the EU starting next year after announcing that the bloc was losing the global battle.
The British government, backed by manufacturers of automobiles from all Europe, seeks to curb the post-Brexit commercial regulation, which, according to him, will generate huge costs for the industry between 2024 and 2027.
The requirement under the Rules of Origin requires that electric vehicles sold through the canal have 60 percent of their battery and 45 percent of their parts in terms of gross value of 10 percent.
But this week, a high functionary of the commission, Richard Szostak, told the British parliamentarians and the EU that the investment in batteries in the bloc had “fallen to the limit” and that the tariffs would stimulate production.
He pointed out that the participation of the European Union in the global investment in the production of batteries fell from 41 percent in 2021 to only 2 percent in 2022, then the United States would provide large subsidies under the .
Más el factor de tracción[from the US’s IRA]. . . We will add a payment factor that encourages you to buy batteries in China or the United States [by not introducing cross-Channel tariffs]. “This is the other side of the discussion”, said Szostak. Añadió: “La Unión Europea, al juzgar su interes, debe mirar ambos lados de este tema”
La lentitud de las aperturas de plantas de baterias y todo el continente y el reino unido, junto con el dominio chino y parte clove de la operação, significa que la majoja de los automóviles fabricados en Europa no cumplirán con las nuevas reglas de origen . The EU’s automotive pressure group ACEA has calculated that its members will face a tax bill of 4.3 billion euros between 2024 and 2026.
El problema es más acute para los manufacturas de automóviles de Europa continental que vend una grand candidad de automóviles en el Reino Unido, includio Volkswagen, Mercedes y Ford, deboto una nueva cuota de vehículos eléctricos introducida por britáel gonicobierñol.
Automobile manufacturers must have 22 percent of their sales in the United Kingdom made up of zero-emission vehicles in 2024. Fulfilling this objective will require importing electric vehicles manufactured in the continent.
The majority of Japanese and South Korean electric cars can be imported to the United Kingdom free of taxes according to the terms of their post-Brexit commercial agreements. This means that EU car manufacturers lose market share in the United Kingdom if their electric cars receive a surcharge of 10%.
The vehicles manufactured in China have pagan tariffs, but they compete with the electric vehicles manufactured in the EU due to their very low initial price
The Asociación de Fabricantes y Merciantes de Motores, which represents the automotive industry of the United Kingdom, also warned that the introduction of tariffs on imports from the EU would delay the sale of electric vehicles in the United Kingdom. For consumers.
The EU car manufacturers hope that their national governments will pressurize the Commission to change their focus, but they admit that this has not happened yet.
“No one really wants the political signal that you receive when the tariffs of electric cars increase by 10 percent,” said an industry official. Certamente hay disposibilidad para hablar de esto. Pero aun es demasiado pronto para desir qu la accunacion finale ha atrizado iso ahora cambiara. Tenemos un largo camino por delante.
In response to Szostak, the Secretary of Commerce of the United Kingdom, Lord Dominic Johnson, said in a meeting of parliamentarians that the two parties should not “treat each other” by building separate supply chains. Queria “un acceso transfronterizo adequado a lascadenas de supply de cada uno, haciéndolos más efficientes”
