EU voted to ban all petrol and diesel cars by 2035

Sharing is Caring!

In the face of strong conservative opposition, European Parliament lawmakers on Wednesday narrowly voted to back a European Commission proposal for a total ban on new CO2-emitting vehicles by 2035.

The Commission last year unveiled plans to stop the sale of vehicles using internal combustion engines as part of an ambitious climate target to cut emissions by more than half over this decade and 90% by 2035.

The measure passed by 339 votes to 249 with 24 abstentions at a session in Strasbourg — in practice limiting future sales to emissions-free all-electric models.

Cars currently account for 12% of all CO2 emissions in the 27-member EU bloc, while transportation overall accounts for around a quarter.
