Stop selling petrol, diesel, LPG / methane and hybrid cars, from 2035

L’Europe is very close to decree the end of gasoline and diesel combustion engines. The stop selling will start from 2035, as foreseen by the proposal of the European Commission inside “Fit for 55 “, a package of measures on the environment, energy, transport, land use and tax policies aimed at combating climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030.

The seeing revolution of Europe was presented by the president of the EU Commission, Ursula von der Leyen. To implement it, i fossil fuels especially in transport, introducing stricter standards in terms of emissions (Euro 7 legislation).

In the climate package presented by President Ursula von der Leyen there is a stop to the sales of endothermic vehicles from 2035

The average emissions of new cars according to Europe will have to decrease by 55% from 2030 is 100% from 2035, compared to 2021 levels. Therefore, from 2035, petrol and diesel cars will no longer be registered. But the end could also be anticipated.

New taxes on fuels

To discourage European motorists from buying endothermic vehicles the European Commission has also proposed new fuel taxes, with i petrol and diesel prices which at least in Italy have already reached record prices. In parallel there will be less taxes on electricity, precisely to encourage the purchase of electric vehicles.

To discourage the purchase of endothermic vehicles from 2023, taxes on fuels are increased

The new fuel taxes are expected to be phased in gradually starting in 2023, with the minimum gasoline tax going through from 0.359 to 0.385 cents per liter, the one on diesel from 0.330 to 0.419 cents per liter. Minimum taxes on electricity will go from one euro per megawatt / hour at 58 cents.

Charging stations on the motorway every 60 km

The development of electric mobility will also mainly involve upgrading the charging infrastructure. In the package Fit for 55 the European Commission has planned to review the regulations on infrastructure for alternative fuels.

The European climate plan also obliges EU countries to install new charging points

Specifically, Member States are asked to strengthen the charging network in line with the sales of zero-emission cars and to install refueling points a regular intervals on major highways: each 60 kilometers for electric and every 150 kilometers for hydrogen.

Stop the sale of thermal cars, ACEA: “Failing to impose or prohibit a technology”

Now the debating phase opens with the proposal that will most likely be approved even if there is no lack of criticism, such as those ofACEA (European Association of Automobile Manufacturers) which stated in a statement that:

The proposed CO2 reduction target for cars of 55% by 2030 (based on 2021 levels) will be very challenging and certainly requires a corresponding binding target for Member States to build the necessary charging and refueling infrastructure – he has declared Oliver Zipse, president of the association and managing director of BMW.

The current proposal for an even greater cut in CO2 emissions by 2030 requires a further massive increase in market demand for electric vehicles in a short space of time. Without a significant increase in efforts by all stakeholders, including Member States and all sectors involved, the proposed goal is simply not feasible.

Oliver Zipse, president of ACEA, criticizes the Fit for 55 package which imposes a halt on sales of thermal cars

All options, including highly efficient internal combustion engines, hybrids, battery and hydrogen electric vehicles, must play their role in transition to climate neutrality, particularly as we work to reduce the carbon footprint of the entire fleet of vehicles on the road, not just new vehicles. It is not the internal combustion engine that is harmful to the environment, but fossil fuels. Without the availability of renewable fuels, a 100% reduction target in 2035 is effectively an internal combustion engine ban.

In the context of the technological restrictions proposed from 2035 onwards, we urge all EU institutions to focus on innovation rather than imposing or banning effectively a specific technology.

Furthermore, on the new charging infrastructures, ACEA is very concerned that the targets are far below what is required, with a worrying reference to only 3.5 million charging points by 2030. According to recent calculations by the Commission, a further decrease of the CO2 emissions from cars to -50% in 2030 would take about 6 million charging points publicly available “.

ANFIA: “Strong concern in the measures envisaged in the Fit for 55 package”

The announcement of the European Commission is also criticized in Italy by ANFIA who in a note expresses bewilderment and strong concern about the proposal, included in the package Fit for 55:

“Although we are aware of the important role that the automotive industry can play in achieving the decarbonisation objectives of the European Green Deal, we believe that the effort required by the current proposal does not take into due account the industrial, economic and social impacts of such choices. ambitious and categorical.

The forecast of a zero emissions target by 2035 for cars and commercial vehicles marks the abandonment of the most advanced propulsion technologies on which, today, most of the Italian component companies, including the multinationals present in our territory, are still predominantly concentrated, making an incomprehensible and univocal technological choice, without considering the fundamental contribution that they could make to decarbonization through the use of renewable fuels with a low carbon content.

ANFIA criticizes Europe’s choice to ban thermal cars from 2035

Even the choice not to provide for flexibility mechanisms in the transition, including those for small manufacturers, highlights an ideological choice that does not take into account the multiple specificities of the automotive supply chain, heavily penalizing niches of excellence, in particular the Italian ones.

Representing the more than 5,000 companies of the Italian industrial chain, strongly affected by this proposal, we appeal to the Italian institutions to adopt a path to accompany the components supply chain to productive reconversion and to represent with determination the requests of one of the most important sectors of the Country in the legislative process that will follow the proposal in the coming months “.
