New figures: Only 24 percent will ban the internal combustion engine

Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder has turned on a plate and is now against a ban on petrol and diesel cars in 2035. So is the vast majority of the population.

Only 24 percent of motorists want the ban on new petrol and diesel cars, which the EU adopted last year, implemented in 2035.

This is according to a new opinion poll that the German newspaper Bild has carried out.

Meanwhile, 61 percent of motorists say that they are directly against the ban. The rest have not been able to decide on the question.

The measurement comes at a time when electric cars in general have hit a low point. Interest in the type of car has fallen drastically, especially after the German government withdrew state support for new electric cars last December.

Already the following month – i.e. back in January – the number of new registrations fell by 55 percent. And that is only for electric cars.

Also Bavaria's Prime Minister Markus Söder, who would have otherwise banned the internal combustion engine in 2020 and spoke for 2035 as the deadline, has now changed his position.

– The ban on the internal combustion engine in 2025 is wrong. Therefore, it must be withdrawn.

– The whole world likes our cars and driving them. It is only the EU that steps on the brakes. It is therefore downright absurd to shut down a functioning technology and leave it to others in the future, says Markus Söder to Bild.

Markus Söder is not the only one who wants the ban on new cars with internal combustion engines rolled back completely.

The largest and oldest group of parties in the European Parliament, the European People's Party Group (EPP), is going straight to the polls for the decision to be overturned. Read more about it here.

However, it looks completely different in Norway. 9 out of 10 new cars run exclusively on electricity. And although there are still most diesel cars in the country, the government will still ban new diesel and petrol cars as early as 1 January 2025. Read more about it here .
