The three EU institutions have reached an agreement to impose a ban on the sale of new cars and trucks running on fuel from 2035. Under the agreement, carbon dioxide emissions must be reduced by 55 percent for new cars and by 50 percent by 2030. New trucks compared to 2021 .
We just finished negotiating CO2 standards for cars. The EU’s historic climate decision unequivocally confirms the goal of 100 per cent zero-emissions cars by 2035, with interim milestones in 2025 and 2030,” said on French Twitter, Pascal Canvin, Chair of the European Parliament’s Environment Committee. A spokesman for the Czech Presidency of the Council said On Twitter, too, “We have an agreement.”
The text adopted is based on the Commission’s proposal in July 2021 and aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from new cars in Europe to zero from 2035. This amounts to an effective moratorium on sales of new petrol, diesel and light commercial vehicles in the EU on that date, As well as hybrid cars (petrol and electric), in favor of fully electric cars.
While the car, the main mode of transportation for Europeans, accounts for just under 15 per cent of the EU’s total carbon dioxide emissions, new regulations should contribute to achieving climate goals, particularly carbon neutrality, by 2050.
This is the first agreement on the text of the European Climate Package (“suitable for 55”), which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the European Union by at least 55 percent by 2030 compared to 1990. It establishes the goal of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. for 2030 by -55 percent for new cars and -50 percent for new trucks compared to 2021.
The exception is given to “specialized” manufacturers or manufacturers who produce less than 10,000 cars per year, which allows them to be equipped with an internal combustion engine until 2036. This item – also known as “Ferrari modification” – will mainly benefit luxury brands.
