I was a little surprised to learn that Germany passed legislation this Summer to require all new vehicle registrations in that country to be zero-emission (electric) by 2030 - quite a decisive step.
A few other European countries are also looking to ban (or tax out of feasibility) gas- or diesel-powered vehicles in the same sort of time frame. Germany, which is a major economy in Europe, is looking to get the rest of Europe to get on board with this strategy, in order to comply with the goals of the Paris agreement.
As of 2030, all new cars registered in Germany must be emissions free, according to The Globe and Mail. Just to be sure that’s clear, zero emissions will be the rule for all new cars allowed on German roads starting in 2030.
