VW will stop selling combustion engine cars in Europe by 2035
Volkswagen is clearly a fan of electric vehicles when it comes to cars like that the ID.4, but he now has a better sense of when he will leave fossil fuels behind. As well as Reuters report, Said Klaus Zellmer, board member of VW Munich Mercury in a interview that the carmaker will stop selling combustion engine cars in Europe between 2033 and 2035. U.S. and Chinese drivers can expect a change “a little later,” Zellmer said, while politics and lack of infrastructure they will drive that change in Africa and South America.
About 70 percent of VW’s European car sales are expected to be VE by 2030, the executor added. He hoped this would put the brand in a good position if the European Union tightened its grip further climate change goals.
VW’s plans just put it off behind Ford and GM, both plan to reduce combustion by key regional lines by 2030. However, the targets still make it clear that combustion engines have been on the market for more than a decade in some parts of the world. It may just be a question of whether the charging infrastructure can be maintained or not.
