Brussels Region To Ban All ICE Vehicles By 2035

With road transportation responsible for 30% of CO2 emissions in the city, Brussels makes an important decision


  • Diesel vehicles will be forbidden as early as 2030.

  • Compressed-natural gas, liquefied natural gas, and hybrids also banned by 2035.

  • The motivation is to meet the EU’s carbon neutrality goal by 2050.


This decision, made by the Brussels regional government, is a big one. Not only does it plan to reduce emissions in the area, but it will invest heavily in further developing its EV charging network with thousands of new stations. The ICE phase plan starts as early as 2025.

All types of internal combustion engine vehicles will be targeted by this ban. Starting in 2025, diesel scooters will be banned, followed by petrol ones in 2028. Come 2030, all diesel vehicles will be banned from entering the Brussels region. Finally, all remaining petrol, compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas, and hybrids vehicles will no longer be permitted within the outlined area come 2035.

“With this new step in the organization of the Brussels low-emission zone, we confirm the region’s desire to opt for a climate transition that is socially just,” Rudi Vervoort, the president of the Brussels region, told a press conference on Friday, as reported by Reuters.

To offset these new rules, the Brussels government plans to install up to 22,000 electric chargers in the region as well as invest in mobility and public transport.
