EU could ban sale of petrol, diesel & hybrid cars from 2035

The European Commission aims to cut down vehicular CO2 emissions by up to 55% in 2030 and by 100% in 2035.

The European Union (EU) could soon ban the sale of all non-electric cars. According to a media report, the European Commission is said to have proposed a series of measures to drastically cut down greenhouse gas emissions.

As per the proposed plans, the European Commission aims to cut down vehicular CO2 emissions by up to 55% in 2030 and by 100% in 2035. This would effectively make it impossible to sell any petrol, diesel or hybrid cars, across any of the 27 member countries of the EU.

The proposal also removes the exemption of the emission rules for small vehicle manufacturers – those producing 1000 to 10,000 cars per year. It also proposes a substantial increase from the current measures, which aims at reducing CO2 emissions by 37.5% by 2030.

The proposal also includes legislations for all member countries to install public charging stations across all its major roads. The proposal also states that these public charging points should have a max interval of 60 km for BEVs and 150 km for hydrogen fuel cell EVs.

Having said that, the proposal from the European Commission still needs to be approved by the EU parliament, before becoming a law.
