The European Parliament’s Committee for the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) has adopted the new law on CO2 emission standards for cars. In 2035, the sale of thermal cars will be prohibited.
A close vote, but a victory all the same. The Environment Committee of the European Parliament voted 46 votes in favor (40 votes against and two abstentions)the new law governing car CO2 emission standards“, announced its president Pascal Canfin,
“The end of the sale of non-zero emission cars in 2035 is voted. See you now in plenary at the beginning of June“, continues the person concerned. The automotive sector will therefore indeed have to comply with very restrictive rules which will push them to offer an increasingly electrified catalog by this deadline.
A plenary session in June
This strong decision will notably make it possible to reduce CO2 emissions linked to cars. As a reminder, in 2021, the European Union agreed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030. Obviously, manufacturers will strengthen their offer well before to prepare for the future and comply with the rules in force thanks to electric cars.
A final step must also be taken. The project must now be voted on during a plenary session which brings together the 705 deputies of the European Parliament. Pascal Canfin gives us an appointment at the beginning of June.
