It is too early to ban petrol and diesel, say the majority

At least a majority of Germans believe that it is too early to talk about a ban when the EU wants to ban the internal combustion engine in 2035.

A majority of Germans believe that it is far too early for the EU to talk about a ban on the internal combustion engine.

Automobilwoche writes this on the basis of a new survey prepared by the analysis company Civey.

But the EU does more than just talk about a ban. It was despite opposition from e.g. The German government decided that new fossil-fuel cars should be banned in 2035.

Well, almost. Because precisely because of opposition from Germany and six other EU countries, the union had to bend. This means that the internal combustion engine will also be usable in 2035.

But this assumes that the engine can only run on synthetic fuel. To enforce the ban, the EU will force car manufacturers to equip cars with devices that can detect whether petrol or the synthetic kind has been put in the tank.

The Germans are not the only ones who believe that it is too early to talk about a ban. A number of car brands and other companies in the car industry also think so.

While Toyota does not believe at all that the electric car will ever account for more than 30 percent of global car sales, German Mahle demands that the ban be rolled back by the EU.

– We need to lift the complete ban on cars with internal combustion engines, which the EU has decided, says managing director at Mahle, Arnd Franz, in an interview with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

From a political point of view, the ban on the internal combustion engine is also already wavering. The government-bearing party on the Spanish holiday island of Mallorca will, for example, cancel an otherwise planned ban on new diesel cars from 2025. Read more about it here .
