The European Parliament passed a law by a majority vote, which stipulates that from 2035, only cars with zero emissions will be able to be sold in Europe, which means that the sale of new vehicles on petrol and diesel will be banned, Politico reported.

The law, which aims to reduce total carbon dioxide emissions by 55% by 2030 from 1990 levels, was supported by 339 MEPs, 249 were against and 24 abstained.

With today's vote, the work on that law is not finished, because the text should now be harmonized with the European Council, and the final version should be signed by the ministers of environmental protection of the EU member states at the meeting in Luxembourg on June 28.

The desire is to speed up the transition to electric vehicles in Europe and to encourage car manufacturers to invest more in electrification, which is further encouraged by another law, which will require member states to set up millions of charging stations for electric vehicles.
