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. This proposal, announced by the European executive in July 2021, has finally become a reality, requiring that the sale of gasoline and diesel vehicles in the EU be stopped in 2035. This measure should help achieve the goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.
However, alternative technologies, such as synthetic fuels or plug-in hybrids, will only be considered if they can completely eliminate greenhouse gas emissions.
