Europe News Desk!!! In a move towards electric vehicles (EVs), the European Parliament has approved legislation banning the sale of new gas and diesel cars in the EU from 2035. The new law sets a path to zero CO2 emissions for new cars and light commercial vehicles by 2035. The Commission will introduce a methodology to assess and report data on CO2 emissions over the entire life cycle of cars and vans sold on the EU market by 2025. According to the Member of the European Parliament, this regulation will encourage the production of zero and low emission vehicles. This includes an ambitious revision of targets for 2030 and a zero-emission target for 2035, which is critical to reaching climate neutrality by 2050.
Buying and operating zero-emissions cars will become cheaper for consumers, and the second-hand market will emerge more quickly, Huitima said. This will make sustainable driving accessible to all. Manufacturers responsible for small production volumes in a calendar year (1,000 to 10,000 new cars or 1,000 to 22 000 new vans) could be exempted until the end of 2035, the commission said. Every two years, from the end of 2025, the Commission will publish a report to evaluate progress towards zero-emission road mobility. The law was first accepted by negotiators from EU countries, the European Parliament and the European Commission in October last year. Several automakers, such as Volkswagen, have already called for only producing EVs in Europe by 2033.
