The shift to Euro-5 has been postponed for a year in Russia

RBK – The Russian Ministry of Industry and Commerce has extended the time limit given to car manufacturers for the shift to Euro-5 standards for another year. Accordingly, the manufacturers will be allowed to make production within the frame of the former procedure until 31.12.2015. Previously, the shift was planned to be completed by 31.12.2014.

The ministry has shown the poor fuel quality that may damage vehicle engines in some of the peripheral regions of Russia as the reason for the postponement of the shift.
