“The answer, in the short to mid-term could be ‘yes’ if you look past the populist politics. Most manufacturers are introducing mainly hybrid vehicles now anyway, and plans for an electric-only future are hampered by lots of practical issues that are not going to go away any time soon. Internal combustion (IC) cars are also lasting longer too.

Modern Euro 6 vehicles are generally very fuel efficient and definitely very clean in terms of emissions; so the environmental argument is being addressed - while a more sustainable power generation infrastructure is built-up. What is clear is that the aftermarket will need to provide support for these vehicles for a long time to come.

The announcement simply underlines that plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and latest generation of mild hybrid 48V (MHEV) powered vehicles are going to be the focus for the foreseeable future. Legislation aside, cost and practicality considerations also mean that this will probably be the case way past 2030.

Klarius along with many other leading manufacturers of automotive components and consumables will be there to support the replacement needs of all these vehicles – helping to maintain their emissions and performance standards long into the future.”
