EU presents economic project to favor the environment

Brussels, July 8 (Prensa Latina) The European Union (EU) presented today a proposal to reduce CO2 emissions from vehicles to zero over the next decade, the final blow to the manufacture of cars with internal combustion engines.

For almost a century, Europe, the cradle of some of the world’s most prestigious car brands, played a central role in automobile innovation, particularly with its engines, considered among the most efficient.

But cars became the center of much criticism for its greenhouse gas emissions. In 2020 the EU increased its emission reduction targets and aims at carbon neutrality by 2050.

It wants now to propose new regulations to reach that goal, for what it considers the complete elimination of car emissions by 2035.

As battery electric vehicles are in fact the only ones that will be able to meet that goal, they will become the only authorized in the new market.

German analyst Matthias Schmidt pointed out that electrically powered cars accounted for almost eight percent of new registrations in Western Europe in the first five months of this year.

This figure makes up a total of 356 thousand vehicles, more than in all of 2019.

The new standard will boost those vehicles even further and help refuse hybrid or rechargeable models that combine fuel engine and battery.
