Volkswagen will stop selling internal combustion engines by 2035

German carmaker Volkswagen will stop selling cars with internal combustion engines by 2035. This is due to the transition to electric propulsion. The end of the sale is planned for the earliest in Europe, specifically between 2033 and 2035.

In the US and China, it is expected with the end of internal combustion engines later. This will be an even longer period in South America and Africa, as the political situation and infrastructure there are not conducive to the development of electromobilism.

However, by 2050 at the latest, Volkswagen’s range of vehicles should be limited to those with a neutral carbon footprint. In Europe, the company will strive to make electric cars account for 70% of total vehicle sales by 2030. The European Union is pushing for emission reductions, so car manufacturers have to deal with the development of low-emission propulsion, otherwise they are forced to pay high fines for exceeding CO2 limits.
