Manager from Porsche Meschke claims that the European ban on incinerators could be delayed and postponed. It would not be the first such case. For example, Great Britain was also forced to revise its ambitious plans and moved the end of sales of new cars with a classic engine by five years – from the original year 2030 to 2035.
“There's a lot of debate right around the end of internal combustion engines,” reviewed Meschke and added: “I think it might be delayed. This is likely partly due to pressure from some car manufacturers, as well as the prevailing consumer opinion of electric cars, including lingering concerns about charging infrastructure.
Porsche could benefit from the delay in the end of internal combustion engines in the EU, although the carmaker itself has already committed to extensive electrification of its product range. The big unknown for now are the June elections to the European Parliament, which can shake up the cards this year. Some more conservative politicians are no longer hiding their ambition to stop Brussels' ban on selling new cars with a combustion engine.
