It will be there energy crisis and the rise in electricity prices pushed up also by winds of war between Ukraine and Russiathe fact is that It is no longer safe to stop the sale of thermal cars from 2035. If the Italian words those don’t make noise German on the contrary, they have a different and more incisive weight within Europe.
In fact, according to what was declared by the Minister of Transport, Volker Wissingthe German government headed by the chancellor Olaf Scholz withdraws its unconditional support for the European Commission’s proposal.
What will happen to the thermal cars? Germany against the stop
What will happen to the thermal cars? The European Commission in decreeing the stop to the sale of endothermic vehicles from 2035 loses a precious ally on the road. There Germany in fact, he withdraws and withdraws his unconditional support and through the voice of the Minister of Transport, Volker Wissing, opens more convincingly to synthetic fuels e-fuel.
All-in on the electric is a strategic mistakealso because there are technologies that make it possible to immediately reduce the CO2 emissions of the current fleet in Europe, even in the diesel engines.
Alternative to electric cars, yes to a holistic approach
“We want to allow internal combustion engines after 2035, but only if they can be powered exclusively with synthetic fuels”Wissing said, on the sidelines of a informal summit in France with the other European transport ministers.
In his speech he also stated that in order to meet the goal of zero emissions and decarbonisation in transport, a holistic approach (the one also supported by Mazda and other Japanese manufacturers), which in addition to the electric includes other technologies: “For the future, we cannot focus on electric mobility or hydrogen alone. We need to maintain a neutral technological approach ”.
Germany is not the only one that distances itself from the measures Fit-for-55 proposed by the European Commission. Previously the France is committed to defending the engines plug-in hybridswhich from 2035 will also be banned.
What will happen to thermal cars in Italy?
In Italy instead the Minister of Ecological Transition Roberto Cingolani may have sometimes expressed doubts about an electric-only approach. In addition to the usual infrastructural problems, the all-in on the EVs also comes with it social difficultieswith Italy in danger of paying a very high price in terms of jobs.
“We had to give a general orientation position of Italy because in the document that will be released in mid 2022 on the Fit for 55 package, among the various things to be discussed at national and European level there will also be the presumed date of the phase-out – the words of Cingolani at the Corriere della Sera – Italy has given its most prudent position like all the manufacturing countries: 2035 for cars and 2040 for vans.
Other countries that do not produce cars have even spoken of 2030. 2035, however, is not a date that marks something, it is only the basis on which to start the European parliamentary discussion ”.
