End of combustion engine sales by 2035: EU
To remove carbon emissions from new cars by 2035, an endorsement has been pushed by the European Union countries heralding the end of the era of the internal combustion engine.
For the final shape of the bloc’s so-called fit for 55 landmark greenhouse gas-reduction package, the agreement allows member states’ negotiating stance for further talks with the EU Parliament & the European Commission. Lawmakers of the EU are already in the favour of giving up fossil fuels in the auto industry. Most of the car companies will have to shift to make electric models in the near future.
“I have full confidence that the European car industry can manage,” Frans Timmermans, the commission’s executive vice-president, told the ministers. He added “Our carmakers are among Europe’s industrial leaders and they can continue to be that as they embrace this global shift.”
