Ban on combustion engine cars in Europe by 2035: Why are some luxury manufacturers not concerned?

On Wednesday, June 8, the European Parliament voted a historic text banning the sale of combustion engine vehicles in Europe by 2035. However, some luxury manufacturers are exempt from this decision. Explanations.

 

Indeed, this decision was taken with the objective of reducing by 100% the CO2 emissions of vehicles sold new in the European Union by 2035. To achieve this decision, thermal vehicles, i.e., those running on diesel or gasoline engines, will be banned, as well as hybrids. Only 100% electric models will be allowed to enter production, currently considered the only technological vehicles that meet all ecological criteria.

 

However, a discreet amendment offers an exemption to high-end manufacturers who can thus escape this ban.

 

Why are luxury manufacturers exempted?

 

An amendment nicknamed “Ferrari”, tabled by Roberto Cingolani, Italian Minister of Ecological Transition and former member of the board of directors of Ferrari, allows luxury car manufacturers producing less than 1,000 of their vehicles per year to continue to run on gasoline. He justified this decision by explaining that for Ferrari and Lamborghini, for example, it would be more difficult for high-end models to switch to electric power. Bugatti, which rarely produces more than 100 vehicles per year, is affected by this amendment.

 

For their part, manufacturers producing between 1,000 and 10,000 cars per year will have to comply with the sales ban one year later, as of January 1, 2036, or apply for an exemption. Indeed, the text gives these companies until December 31, 2035 to apply for a temporary derogation from the CO2 quotas imposed by the European regulation.

 

Nevertheless, the environmental NGOs present at this meeting have nevertheless emphasized “a revolution that is both ecological and industrial for the automotive sector”.
