EU climate plan: The end of combustion engines in 2035 approved by the 27

On Tuesday night, the 27 member states of the European Union approved the Commission’s plan to reduce CO2 emissions from new cars from 2035.


The European Union has taken the measure of the importance of decisions concerning the climate by imposing to reduce to zero the CO2 emissions of new cars in Europe, from 2035.
