OFFICIAL. The deadline by which all combustion engines disappear

So far there has been only speculation, now it is official. The European Commission has set a deadline for all combustion engines. When will they go out of production?


The European Commission puts an end to the production of combustion engines. The European forum presented the “Fit for 55” plan. It details the legislative framework on the changes that will take place in the coming period.

According to this plan, 2035 is the deadline for conventional propulsions. In order to achieve the presented objectives, radical measures are required among car manufacturers.

By 2030, the European Union aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 55% compared to 2021. The average range of carbon dioxide emissions should not exceed 95 gr at that time. Co.2/km.

Five years later, in 2035, combustion engines must disappear completely from the offer of car manufacturers. They will only be required to sell zero-emission vehicles. To encourage the purchase of electric cars, The European Commission promises substantial funding and calls for the necessary infrastructure development to be accelerated. Thus, starting from 2025, according to the plan, charging stations will be located at distances of maximum 60 kilometers.

For the first time, the Brussels Commission’s plan also covers the aviation industry and maritime transport. Europe aims to become the first carbon-neutral continent by 2050.

France, the first state to oppose this deadline by which combustion engines must disappear

The package of radical measures proposed by the European forum will be submitted to the approval of the 27 EU member states, then will enter the European Parliament. The procedure could take about two years and could involve a number of changes.

It is possible that the giants of the car industry and several European countries will protest against the package of measures. The French Government has already announced its opposition to the communicated deadline. Paris officials are calling for an extended period of tolerance for hybrid vehicles beyond 2035. President Emmanuel Macron has already had a meeting with Stellantis group leaders and Renault representatives.

According to estimates of Automotive Platforms, the elimination of combustion engines will lead to the loss of about 100,000 jobs in France. Currently, in the Hexagon, the automotive industry directly provides 190,000 jobs.
