Ford and Volvo call for a ban on new combustion engine cars in EU by 2035

The large car groups Ford and Volvo are behind a call from around thirty companies to the European Union to only allow the sale of new zero-emission cars and vans by 2035. The companies that signed the open letter also want national targets for charging infrastructure for electric cars.

“EU policymakers must also set binding national targets for an electric charging infrastructure that meets the growing demand for electric vehicles,” said Stuart Rowley, Ford of Europe chief executive.

A binding and comprehensive development of the charging infrastructure in all EU Member States is absolutely necessary,” said Hildegard Müller, chairwoman of the German sector association VDA. “The success of electric mobility stands or falls with the expansion of the charging infrastructure.”
