The ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by the European Union from 2035, may continue definitively . The EU countries, including the protesting Germany, agreed to this important climate measure on Monday.

Germany protested at the last minute that cars running on sustainable fuels would also suffer. But Berlin still changed over the weekend after the assurance from the European Commission that it will make room in the rules for such climate-friendly combustion engines, for example on hydrogen. If the European Parliament thwarts that – no imaginary idea – the committee will, if necessary, take a detour to arrange it.

U-turn Germany’s turnaround does not mean that all EU countries are now behind the plans to ban the fuel car. Italy and some Eastern European member states, for example, are not yet satisfied. But without Germany, the opponents are too few to prevent the decision. On Tuesday, the climate and energy ministers still have to ratify it during their consultations in Brussels.
