EP approves ban on the sale of diesel and gasoline vehicles from 2035

The European Parliament (EP) has voted on the European Commission’s proposal to approve a proposal banning the sale of new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles with diesel and gasoline from 2035 under the EU’s zero emissions policy. With the decision taken, from 2035, only new electric or hydrogen vehicles will be allowed to be sold instead of internal combustion engine vehicles. The European Council is expected to enter into force by the end of the year with its approval of the decision.

With the decision taken as part of the climate package aimed at significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 in order for the European Union (EU) to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, automakers will have to reduce the carbon emissions of their new cars by 55 percent for passenger cars and 50 percent for commercial vehicles from 2030.

SECOND-HAND VEHICLES ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE DECISION

While it is stated that second-hand vehicles are not included in the decision, the price of second-hand vehicles is expected to increase. MEP Alexandr Vondra said in a statement: “With the new decision, only electric and hydrogen cars will be sold from 2035. Of course, the prices of electric cars are proportional to their batteries, and the prices are expensive compared to the prices of cars with internal combustion engines. Since there is no obstacle to the sale of second-hand cars, there will be a temporary uncertainty in the market. Therefore, prices will increase there as well.”

Today, there are more than a billion fossil-fueled vehicles in the world, producing more than 30 percent of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions, according to published reports. The tightening of vehicle emission rules is part of the “Fit for 55” climate package, in which the EU wants to achieve a 55 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 compared to 1990.
