Will new fuel cars be banned from 2035? It doesn’t seem like it

The sale of new fuel cars will be banned in 2035. At least, that is the European Union’s plan. However, the resistance to it is increasing. Five EU countries want to postpone the ban by five years. And in Germany they may not want a ban at all.

The proposed ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars was recently approved by the European Parliament. But official documents would show that five countries want to postpone the measure, the news agency reported Reuters† Bulgaria, Italy, Portugal, Romania and Slovakia think 2035 is too early and do not want the ban to come into effect until 2040.

Germany may not support the ban at all

They think a longer transition phase is needed and say they need more time to build up a charging infrastructure. That is why they want to achieve a CO2 reduction for passenger cars of 90 percent in 2035 and then to 100 percent in 2040. Germany is the most negative about the European sales ban. The finance minister recently said his country may not support the EU’s plan at all. There will always be a niche for combustion engine cars, according to the man.
