Europe approves plan to end sales of combustion engine vehicles by 2035.

According to reports, on February 14 local time, the European Parliament passed a proposal to stop selling fuel engine vehicles in Europe in 2035 with 340 votes in favor, 279 against, and 21 abstentions.

It is worth mentioning that a survey published by foreign media earlier showed that consumers hope to accelerate the electrification transformation of cars through legislation. One-third of global consumers support the ban on petrol and diesel vehicles before 2030.

The global survey covered 18,000 respondents in 19 markets including North America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe. The results showed that 34\% of consumers supported stopping the sale of internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles before 2030. If the deadline is extended to 2035, this proportion will rise to 47\%. The latest survey also shows that three-quarters of respondents believe that society needs products different from the past to improve and protect the climate and environment for future generations.
