Volkswagen has now committed to halt combustion vehicles 2035

Volkswagen like many other automakers has now committed to halt the sale of new combustion vehicles by the year 2035 in Europe.

Many Car manufacturers have been adding their names to those committed to halting ICE vehicles.

Reuters has been informed by Klaus Zellmer, Volkswagen’s board member for sales, that the company will “exit the business with internal combustion engine cars in Europe between 2033 and 2035.”

However, He then went on to state it would take longer to stop the sale of combustion engines in both the US and China.

in South America and Africa, Volkswagen looks to do the same thing, but, “it will take a good deal longer.”

He did however go on to say that the entire automaker’s fleet will become carbon neutral by the year 2050 at the very latest.

He personally would like to see the electric vehicles accounting for 70% of the companies total sales in Europe by the year 2030.

This does put Volkswagens commitment behind that of some of its competitors, such as Jaguar who has 2025 targeted and Ford who aim to be complete carbon neutrality in Europe by 2030.
