CSU top candidate - EPP leader Weber wants to overturn the ban on combustion engines

The CSU's top candidate and Chairman of the EPP Group in the European Parliament, Manfred Weber, wants to overturn the ban on combustion engines in 2035. "If my group can secure a majority after the European elections, we will reverse the ban on combustion engines passed by the European Parliament in this legislative period," Weber told the newspapers of the Bavarian media group Mediengruppe Bayern.

After 2035, it should still be possible to register combustion engines if they are CO2-neutral - i.e. run on synthetic fuels, so-called e-fuels. The EU has agreed to review the plans in 2026, which will also examine how many e-cars and charging stations there are. "I would like to use this revision to remedy this decision driven by the red and green parties, which is leading to massive competitive disadvantages for the EU," said Weber.
