China Prohibits Diesel And Gas Car Production After 2040

By

China has joined other countries in setting a deadline to stop making vehicles with an internal combustion engine. No date has officially been announced, but it’s expected to come after the 2040 mark. This latest move looks to be the end goal after designating multiple goals for zero-emission vehicle sales in the upcoming years.

Xin Guobin, China’s Vice Minister of Industry and Information Technology, announced on Sunday that they’re working on a guideline to eliminate the production of fossil-fueled vehicles. The United Kingdom and France have announced that by 2040, any production of vehicles with an internal combustion engine would be prohibited. It’s a significant goal to set in any stretch as China holds the world’s largest market share of vehicles.
