MEPs back objective of zero emissions for cars and vans in 2035

In a plenary vote on the 8th of June, MEPs adopted their position on proposed rules to revise the CO2 emissions performance standards for new cars and vans, part of the “Fit for 55 in 2030” package.

With the adopted text, which constitutes Parliament’s position to negotiate with Member States, MEPs support the Commission proposal to reach zero-emission road mobility by 2035 (an EU fleet-wide target to reduce the emissions produced by new passenger cars and light commercial vehicles by 100% compared to 2021). Intermediate emissions reduction targets for 2030 would be set at 55% for cars and 50% for vans.
