EU to ban petrol-diesel powered cars- Members of the European Parliament have voted to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2035. The move aims to intensify the fight against climate change with the rapid development of electric vehicles. Voting was placed on an amendment allowing some auto emissions after 2035, which has now been rejected by Members of Parliament.

The European Union Assembly has voted in Strasbourg. France requires automakers to cut carbon-dioxide emissions by 100 percent by the middle of the next decade. This order will ban the sale of new cars running on petrol or diesel in the 27 countries of the European Union.

Members of the European Parliament still have to negotiate the final legislation with ministers from the 27 EU national governments. However, yesterday’s vote has increased pressure on governments to phase out cars with combustion engines in the EU’s single market of 447 million people.

Talks to finalize the law are scheduled for later this year. If a deal is reached, it would be an effective move to eliminate combustion engine cars in Europe. EU lawmakers have also supported a 55 percent reduction in CO2 from automobiles in 2030 compared to 2021.

The decision follows a new obligation on the car industry to reduce carbon dioxide discharge by an average of 37.5 percent at the end of this decade compared to the previous decade.
