Valid from today – here are the requirements for all new cars

From Sunday 7 July, a large number of new requirements apply to all new cars sold within the EU. England, who dropped out in 2020, are out.

From today, Sunday 7 July, a large number of new requirements apply to cars and vans sold in the EU. For example, a speed limiter will be mandatory.

But more on that in a moment. Because speed is not the only thing the EU is keeping an eye on in new cars with the new requirements. A so-called black box will also become standard equipment. Read more about it here.

What the new requirements have in common, however, is that they are impossible to turn off. At least permanently. The new speed limiter, called ISA, must, for example, be switched off for every single trip.

Otherwise, the driver behind the wheel is warned as soon as the speed is exceeded by just one kilometer per hour. The goal, says the EU, is to reduce the number of traffic accidents.

It is still unclear exactly how much the new standard systems will increase the price of new cars. But it is clear that there is only one person to pay the bill. Namely the individual car buyer.

Something completely third, which will now also be mandatory, is a rear camera. And if the car factories don't want to equip the cars with it, there must be parking sensors as a minimum. Something that just a few years ago was a very expensive extra for, for example, German cars.

Railway assistant will also become mandatory. But it is far from all car brands that the system works equally well. For example, Chinese MG has received many blows for their version of the assistant.

Automatic nose brake also does not work with all car brands. Nevertheless, it is legally required equipment from today.

The same is true of brake lights, which must flash when/if the driver brakes extra hard. Finally, the EU requires that all new cars meet a so-called cyber security certificate. Something that – at least theoretically – should make the electronics in them less exposed to attack.

However, the certificate has already meant that a number of car brands have had to give up selling certain cars in Europe. This applies, for example, to Porsche.

New requirements have also been introduced for trucks and buses. These must, for example, be equipped with blind spot assistant from now on. Something that is not a requirement in passenger cars. Yet…
