In the climate package of 14 July, the European Commission could propose 2035 as the last year in which it will be possible to sell petrol or diesel cars in Europe. According to the rumors circulating in Brussels, reported by various media, in the proposal on the new CO2 standards the Commission could not stop to set targets for 2030.


    In an interview with Ansa, the Commission's director general climate Mauro Petriccione mentioned the possibility of a 2030 target of 40 grams of CO2 per kilometer, which would mean a 60% reduction in emissions for new cars compared to today. Adding a 100% target by 2035 would mean the end of diesel and gasoline engines.


    For climate neutrality by 2050 "according to the International Energy Agency, all new cars placed on the global market must be zero-emission by 2035 - explains the president of the Environment Commission of the European Parliament Pascal Canfin - and European manufacturers need of a clear political signal ". "These are just indiscretions - is the comment from Acea, the EU manufacturers' association - we await the proposal".
