Zero-emission cars by 2035: new EU rules explained


By 2035, all new cars manufactured for the EU market should produce zero-emissions. This is what Parliament is aiming for with new rules on CO2 emission standards for cars and vans as part of the Fit for 55 package. Older cars (including diesel cars) will be allowed to continue running until the end of their lifetime, but investing in future vehicles starts now. MEPs want car manufacturers to start developing affordable electric cars and vans now, in order to meet market demand by 2035 and reach the EU’s 2050 climate objectives.
