Ford of Europe and Volvo have joined an appeal sent to the European Union together by 28 other companies in the automotive sector to ask for a stop to the sale of internal combustion cars and vans for 2035. With the request, the various industrial and financial realities invite the European institutions not only to ensure that in 2035 all newly registered vehicles are zero-emission, but also to define what measures will be needed to be able to accelerate charging infrastructures and binding targets for all public refueling points

Only two car brands, Ford Europe and Volvo, joined this appeal together with multinationals such as Iberdrola, Sanofi, Zurich, Unilever, Novo Nordisk, Sap, Tesco and Vattenfall. The US Uber is among the signatories. In Brussels, meanwhile, the approval process for the package proposing a stop to endothermic plants in 2035 is now in the crucial stages.

The goal is zero net issuance by 2050

The 28 companies are of the opinion that it is necessary to adopt legislation that establishes clear standards and timelines for industry and suppliers to follow, in order to guarantee the transition towards electric mobility which is now the definitive solution.
