Approval to ban the sale of diesel and petrol vehicles in Europe by 2035

It is said that the European Union has taken steps to approve the banning of the sale of diesel and petrol vehicles with internal combustion engines in Europe by the year 2035.

This has been approved at the meeting of the European Union environment ministers that is being held these days. Through this, its 27 member states have aimed to become zero carbon dioxide emissions.

Accordingly, it has been decided that the number of internal combustion engines produced by European Union car manufacturers should be reduced to 10,000 per year until the year 2035.

 The decision to ban the sale of these vehicles was first proposed in July 2021. Accordingly, the plan was to ban the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles in the European Union, as well as to convert commercial light vehicles into vehicles with fully electric engines from the year 2035.

In particular, the proposal is aimed at eliminating car-based carbon emissions in Europe by 2050. The request was made by EU members Germany and Italy, and the other member states agreed. Accordingly, they have agreed to focus on future eco-friendly alternative technologies such as fossil fuels, synthetic fuels or battery-powered hybrid cars.
