The European Parliament decides to prohibit the sale of new petrol cars by 2035
The European Union is one step closer to prohibiting the sale of new gas-powered automobiles. The European Parliament approved a Council accord mandating all new passenger vehicles and vans to emit zero emissions by 2035. Several 2030 objectives are also revised as a result of the change. If a corporation wants to qualify for incentives between 2025 and 2029, officials will now demand that at least 25% of vehicle sales (and 17% of van sales) be zero-emissions models. The incentive will be phased off in 2030.
