Member states of the European Union (EU) have decided to postpone a vote on the regulation, which includes a ban on the sale of new cars with internal combustion engines from 2035.
Daniel Holmberg, spokesperson for the Committee of Permanent Representatives (COREPER) at the European Council, shared on his social media account that representatives of member states have decided to postpone the date for a vote on the regulation that will bring strict carbon emission standards for new cars and light commercial vehicles that will be sold in EU countries. instead of March 7th.
According to the regulation, which was approved by the General Assembly of the European Parliament (EP) last month and must be formally approved by EU member states to take effect, all new cars and light commercial vehicles to be sold in EU member states will be sold from 2035. It must be emissions free.
Automakers will work to get rid of carbon emissions by 2035. Thus, as of the mentioned date, new cars with internal combustion engines, including petrol and diesel, will no longer be sold in EU countries.
The emissions reduction target for 2030 will be 55 percent for cars and 50 percent for vans. A new methodology for assessing the carbon emissions that a vehicle will emit over its lifetime will also be developed. It will be ensured that the emission limit values are consistent with emissions in real use.
The regulation in question was among proposals included in the “55 Compliance” package, which is part of the European Green Deal and aims to reduce emissions by at least 55 percent by 2030.
This week, some EU countries, notably Germany and Italy, opposed trying to ban the sale of new cars with internal combustion engines from 2035.
To support this initiative, Germany announced that the EU should provide an exemption for renewable energy and synthetic fuels produced by capturing carbon dioxide in the air, and asked the EU Commission to prepare a regulation on the matter.
Italy has also declared that it is against the regulations and that the only way to achieve zero emissions should not be to opt for electric cars.
