The European Union parliament has decided in favor of an 100% reduction to CO2 emissions for all new vehicles by 2035, while raising interim emission reduction targets. The agreement will result in the demise of all new vehicles with internal combustion engines (ICE) using gasoline and diesel engines by the middle of the next decade in Europe, including hybrids and plug-in hybrids. Specifically, the council agreed that by 2030, CO2 emissions should be reduced by 55% for new cars, and by 50%for new vans. Then, by 2035, all new vehicles sold in the European Union should have zero-emission powertrains, achieving a 100% reduction in CO2 emissions. These aggressive targets will be reviewed in 2026, taking into consideration the technological developments at the time.
