Last year, EU governments and the European Parliament reached a historic agreement on setting a zero tailpipe emission target for all new passenger cars and vans by 2035. This would represent a de-facto ban on the sale of new fossil fuel vehicles. The agreement was rightly heralded as the EU showing global climate leadership at a critical time for our planet and humanity.
The Parliament confirmed this agreement on 14 February. Member States were supposed to do the same in early March. However, now a few of them are attempting to derail the process. This is a deeply worrying and disappointing development.
Now is not the time for backtracking and blocking of science-based climate targets for our industry. Now is not the time to put domestic political interests ahead of the health and welfare of our planet and EU citizens, and indeed of future generations. Now is the time for strong, decisive and progressive policy and leadership.
Volvo Cars is committed to being a fully electric car company by 2030 on our way to climate neutrality by 2040. We are aware of our obligation to help protect the planet. We call on EU Governments to show that they are too.

    Volvo is really committed to transition. There is no room for backtracking the EU agreement should be actualized.
