The automobile segment has been changing and the bet on electric cars is clear. For now, prices for electric vehicles, in general, are still higher, but the future may dictate changes.
Brussels wants electric cars “affordable for all Europeans”.
Electric cars: EU wants to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions
The European Commission will shortly present a set of measures to ensure that the Union achieves its target of reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 55% by 2030, compared to 1990 levels.
According to what was reported this Sunday by “Financial Times”, according to the vice-president of the European Commission Frans Timmermans, the objective is to have electric cars “accessible to all Europeans”.
Among those measures is a tightening of CO2 levels for new cars sold over the next decade, as well as a proposal that automakers pay for pollution from the vehicles they market. We have to do these two things to stimulate the introduction of electric vehicles” in the market, which will increase the offer and, in turn, will lead to a drop in the prices of these vehicles, reveals the ECO.
We do not believe that setting an end date for cars with combustion engines is enough.
But telling the industry that we will be increasingly restricted in terms of emissions sends that message and pushes them in that direction.
Frans Timmermans, Vice President of the European Commission
The European Commission will not set a date to end the sale of combustion cars, but will encourage the end of these vehicles soon.
