Redy2Drive Electric, EU agrees to ban new combustion-engined cars from 2035
Car makers in the EU will be required to cut their CO2 emissions by 50% by 2030 and 100% by 2035
Now the European Union have confirmed their position on internal combustion engines, the date of the their demise for new sales. With a block of 27 EU countries all coming together with this policy joining the UK. Car manufactures now have clarity and guidance on the path they will now need to follow. You can expect hundreds of new electric vehicle models to be released in just the next two year. Generally cars are based on a seven or eight year plan and clearly that will now not work for new releases of internal combustion engine vehicles with just seven years to the 2030 deadline.
For the UK all new vehicles after 2030 will have to be hybrid or full electric. The EU a very similar approach has been taken with all vehicles being Zero Co2 by 2035 and ice vehicle must cut emissions by 55% and so highly likely to be hybrids.
At Redy2Drive Electric driving school we have been studying the progress of electric cars since 2010. By 2018 the decision was made to go electric with the next training car. With serious research starting in 2019, we looked at the Renault Zoe, Nissan Leaf, Peugeot e-208 & Hyundai Kona. Price & range were the most important factors.
In the end the Hyundai Kona won. In 2020 Redy2Drive achieved its dream and purchased their 1st fully electric car. By 2021 we ditched the only petrol car left in the business and now Redy2Drive Driving School was full electric. Join us on the journey to cut Co2 and see just how good electric cars really are. Remember these electric cars are the future, the very near future.Redy2Drive Electric
