EU Just Banned Non-EV Cars From 2035 ON
Imagine thinking this has anything to do with the environment.
EU heralds the end of the internal combustion engine
From 2035, new cars with diesel and petrol engines will no longer be allowed to be registered in the EU. The EU Parliament has now approved the project.
Dhe EU heralds the end of the internal combustion engine. On Tuesday in Strasbourg, the European Parliament voted with 340 votes in favour, 279 against and 21 abstentions to only allow cars with electric or hydrogen drives by 2035. For new cars and light commercial vehicles with petrol and diesel engines, this will end at the end of 2034. This also applies if they are operated with synthetic fuels, so-called e-fuels.
The interim targets are to reduce CO 2 emissions from cars by 55 percent by 2030 compared to 2021. For light commercial vehicles, the interim target is 50 percent. Parliament thus backed a compromise on the 2021 Commission proposal negotiated with the Council of Ministers of the Member States in the autumn.
Many jobs are at risk
There had previously been a heated argument about the new CO 2 limits and the end of combustion engines. In the federal government, the FDP had pushed for a technology-open solution that would have made it possible to continue driving combustion engines with e-fuels. In the end, however, this only found its way into a non-legally binding, so-called recital. He calls on the Commission to submit proposals on how cars could still be operated with climate-neutral e-fuels after 2035.
