EU Expected to Announce Combustion Ban From 2035

More EU emissions cuts coming

  • Further emissions crackdown expected

  • Would cut auto emissions 65 percent by 2030, fully from 2035


A new report says that the EU is ready to propose that all new vehicles be zero emissions from 2035 as it works to align the economy and climate change goals. The report says that the European Commission will require emissions to drop 65 percent in 2030 and zero from 2035.

That’s according to an EU document seen by Bloomberg News, Bloomberg reports. It will be a complete clean overhaul of transport and part of a wide range of measures expected to be unveiled this week as the EU works to make an even more strict cut in emissions. This one, to cut greenhouse gasses by at least 55 percent from 1990 levels by 2030. Europe is aiming to be net-zero emissions for the entire continent by 2050.

Passenger cars represent about 12 percent of EU CO2 emissions. Meeting new targets for the continent require a 37.5 percent reduction from 2030 for cars.

Volkswagen has already announced plans to have more than 70 percent of its sales to be electric by 2030, the report says, with Renault aiming for 90 percent by then. Ford is anticipating passenger car sales to be entirely electric in Europe for 2030. Stellantis just last week announced that it is aiming for 70 percent of sales in Europe to be “low-emissions”, a mix of PHEV, hybrid, and EV, for 2030.

Also part of the new emissions package, a proposal to increase renewable electricity from 32 to 40 percent by end of the decade. This would help clean the auto emissions even further. To help keep the EVs charged, new rules expected to be proposed would require all EU countries to have charging points every 60 km on major routes and hydrogen fueling every 150.
