The European Federation for transports and environment, commonly indicated as Transport & Environment, has recently ordered Governments to anticipate the provision for decreasing emissions that would ban all forms of non-electric motors. The context was COP26 climate one, followed by a diktat coming from the group of sustainable mobility lobbyists: «The car industry’s electrification – said Julia Poliscanova, senior director for vehicles and e-mobility at T&E – plans place it ahead of regulators on climate action. But these won’t materialise without actual targets to end car emissions by 2035 at the latest. The US and Europe, especially Germany and France, need to lead».
The next step advocated by Transport & Environment is closer: the automotive industry must cut emissions by 80% within 2030.
