The compulsory electric car in 2035, it is clearer, will electric vehicles be compulsory from 2030?

Will companies be forced to buy electric cars from 2030

European deputies have not yet voted the proposal. She may come up against to the reluctance of certain parliamentarians , elected in states where rolling in electricity is not in habits.

The electric car compulsory in 2035, it is becoming clearer

The law prohibiting the sale of new cars equipped with a fossil energy engine has just been voted by the European Parliament Environment Commission. In other words, we are approaching an obligation to drive by electric car by 2035 in Europe.

In recent years, the European Parliament has been working on a large hardening of vehicle sales standards with the aim of making the most of the purchase of non -polluting cars. After ever more drastic CO2 thresholds to respect for car manufacturers, he recently put on the table the project to prohibit purely and simply the sale of fossil (same hybrid) cars from 2035.

And we are seriously getting closer to this possibility: yesterday, the Environment Commission of the European Parliament voted the future law framing the CO2 emission standards of cars by 46 votes to 40 (and two abstentions). It now remains to pass this law within the framework of a plenary session of the Parliament, which will be done by the beginning of June . Then, the prohibition to sell anything other than cars generating any mechanical emissions during rolling (100% electric or hydrogen models) from 2035 in Europe will be definitively acted.

Manufacturers are already preparing there

On the side of car manufacturers, we anticipate this possible ban: Fiat, Bentley, Peugeot, Opel, DS, Alfa Romeo, Jaguar, Mini, Lexus, Alpine and many others have already announced that they would only market electric cars (or hydrogen) by the end of the decade. Other brands such as BMW or Audi reserve the possibility of continuing to build cars operating in fossil energy for European markets in Europe. And everyone hopes that this fairly brutal transition will be fine.

Will companies be forced to buy electric cars from 2030 ?

The ban on the marketing of thermal cars is scheduled for 2035. But for companies, the change could take place earlier than expected. Indeed, to boost the second -hand market, a European deputy proposes to force them to buy only electric cars from 2030.

For Pascal Canfin, MEP and Chairman of the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety Commission, things are not going fast enough. In an interview with our colleagues from self -actuctu, he announced his willingness to oblige, from 2030 , companies to build up a 100 % rechargeable park.

In France, the law imposes on professionals quotas to be observed for their fleet As soon as it has more than 100 vehicles. Since 2022, companies must have at least 10 % electric cars. This figure will gradually increase to 20 % in 2024, 40 % in 2027, 70 % in 2030 and 100 % in 2035.

A way to boost the second -hand sector

The elected French does not hide it. By advancing the obligation at 2030, its objective is not only to Limit CO2 emissions nor reduce fuel consumption. “We have to push the sales of electric vehicles as much as possible in business fleets, as it allows the second -hand market to be fueled. This is why I decide for the obligation to buy 100 % of electric cars for the fleets of companies from 2030 “ he said.

By switching to all electric 5 years before individuals, companies would feed the second -hand vehicle market . In 2035, when the thermal models are no longer marketed, corporate cars would be available. The French would have access to recent zero emission vehicles at a reduced price.

This would allow in addition to Increase the offer without building new vehicles . Because the manufacture of a car, even electric, has a high impact on the environment. According to

Greenly, the ” production and end of life of an electric car »Would generate 10.2 tonnes of CO 2 against 6.7 tonnes for a thermal.

A proposal far from being unanimous

European deputies have not yet voted the proposal. She may come up against to the reluctance of certain parliamentarians , elected in states where rolling in electricity is not in habits.

Europe has more than 300,000 charging points open to the public, but more than half are located in Germany and the Netherlands. In Greece and Bulgaria , There are only 4 terminals per 100,000 inhabitants ! On the registration side, differences also exist. In Norway, 80 % of new cars are rechargeable. But in Italy , In 2022, the electric fell. It represents 3.72 % of acquisitions and 0.3 % of all vehicles in service.
