Europe bans new gas cars by 2035. Why not sooner?
The EU has adopted the “European Green Deal,” a package of climate targets and solutions to take place over the coming decades. In it, Europe targets a 55% reduction in CO2 by 2030 and full climate neutrality by 2050.
To serve this goal, Europe plans to reduce new car emissions by 55% by 2030 and 100% by 2035 — which means no new emitting vehicles.
The EU-wide 55% by 2030 reduction target is based on 1990 levels, but the automotive 55% by 2030 target is based on 2021 levels. The target is calculated from new car sales, not in-service cars. In 2020, the average emissions from a new car in the EU was 107.8g CO2/km and will likely drop in 2021, which means new cars in 2030 will need to emit an average of 40-some grams of CO2 per kilometer.
