From 2040 it will not be possible to sell cars in Spain with a combustion engine and in 2050 this type of vehicle, which emits carbon dioxide, will no longer be able to circulate in the country.
This ban is the death sentence for combustion cars that includes the Climate Change and Energy Transition Act passed this week in Congress. The law includes measures to improve air quality in cities and promote the implementation of electric cars, the commitment that the Government has proposed.
According to the latest official inventory of greenhouse gases, in 2019, in Spain, transport is responsible for 29.1% of all emissions in the country. And road transport accounts for 26.9% of the total. While the other major sectors reduce their emissions, transport continues to increase them.
