Reward points? EU to issue emissions-free vehicles by 2035

in late 2020 California and then England Standing for the Future of Internal Combustion (ICE) Cars For me, this moment marks the beginning of the end for ICE cars: California, the world’s fifth largest economy, and the state that has Most new car sales throughout the United States and United Kingdom , the leading G7 countries, both offer to sell 100% of new passenger cars as Zero emissions Vehicles (ZEVs) by 2035.

Yes, other countries have Ambitious ICE Vehicle End Date Goals goals and mandates. Norway goals Reaching a 100 percent share of ZEVs in passenger car sales by 2025 is remarkable. However, the California and UK announcements are revolutionary as they change the narrative about electric vehicles (EVs). ) and ZEV

We are now poised at another turning point, but first, some background on how we got here.

California’s actions have sparked impact on other states. in the United States which can still be felt, it is Advanced Clean Cars ProgramThe ZEV regulations, which were previously enforced by ZEV regulations, will only regulate vehicle emissions until 2025. Other states that comply with California’s vehicle emissions standards have begun preparations for new vehicle emissions regulations coming from California in 2026-. 2035 (the initiative is called Advanced Clean Cars II.) The California Air Resources Board will hold two of the two. trial It is scheduled for Aug. 25, which will conclude the official adoption of the new vehicle emissions standards. which effectively sets the ZEV mandate for 2035.

meanwhile in the UK government concluded Initial public consultation period on the ZEV mandate in June. After reviewing the comments will be published. Final ZEV mandate proposal consultation The goal is to issue final regulations by early 2023. It’s unclear what the latest is. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Resignation will affect or delay the launch of the final offer The plan is for the ZEV mandate to come into effect in January 2024, with the goal of achieving 100 percent of ZEV sales for new cars and vans by 2035.

Now, it seems we have a moment. Another “beginning of the end” for ICE cars, and I suspect it will be the last nail in the coffin. It appears. The EU could implement a policy to effectively end the sale of ICE passenger cars by 2035.. and soon I mean late October or early November.

That’s what I learned when talking to Alex Keynes, clean vehicles manager at Transport & Environment in Brussels. Transport & Environment is Europe’s leading NGO campaigning for cleaner transport, and Keynes is at the forefront. of the EU ZEV route

I mean what exactly? And how did we get here? about a year ago The European Commission has introduced a large set of climate legislation on the topic. Suitable for 55 packages Embedded within the package are proposals for increasing the automakers’ CO2 reduction targets. This includes the requirement to end all CO2 emissions from passenger vehicle exhaust by 2035, which is a ZEV mandate.

When the European Commission publishes the proposal The proposal will be submitted to the European Parliament. This includes 705 directly elected members and the Council of Europe, made up of 27 member states, for the European Commission’s proposal to become law. It must be approved by both the Parliament and the Council of Europe. The three political institutions will then meet informally. which is called tricolor to negotiate the final draft of the law

The big news is that the 2035 goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 100 percent from passenger exhaust has been confirmed by european parliament in early June and by council June 28 sets the stage for the trilogy to continue. “The trilogy can begin after the summer. So I think in September … and guess by early November or late October. There will be an agreement on the final message,” Keynes said. “Remember, all three institutions have that. [100 percent CO2 emission reduction target by 2035] It’s their official title … so there’s no reason this won’t pass. And it would be crazy if it wasn’t at this stage.”

To me, that moment seemed historic and would send shockwaves through the already halted automotive industry. Several popular European automakers such as BMW, Volvo, Volkswagen and Audi have launched and sold electric vehicles to meet the stringent carbon emission standards of European cars. It’s hard for me to imagine a world in 2035 or before. That automakers won’t be converting to all-electric vehicles for their new passenger cars in all the major markets around the world. Because it would be costly and inefficient to manufacture both ICE and ZEV fleets.

I see the EU’s ZEV push affecting no country other than the US. which has a goal through executive order To achieve 50 percent EV sales for new passenger cars by 2030. US goals It may not matter if ambitious states like California, as well as countries and regions around the world, drive the market faster. I suspect some automakers will still be selling cheap ICE cars in the market where they still can. but mostly The EU decision could be the final push for any automaker trying to walk the line between ICE and ZEV vehicles.

“clear [the 100 percent CO2 emission reduction target by 2035 is] Will change the market … More and more automakers will turn their entire enterprise to 100 percent electric, and they certainly won’t do that only in the EU. but in the United States too,” Keynes said.
