The German government is still discussing its voting behavior on European Union plans to effectively ban the sale of new cars with combustion engines from 2035, a German government spokesperson said on Wednesday.

In its bid to cut planet-warming emissions by 55% by 2030 from 1990 levels, the European Commission has proposed a 100% reduction in CO2 emissions from new cars by 2035. That means it would be impossible to sell combustion engine cars from then.

European Parliament lawmakers backed the proposals this month before negotiations with EU countries on the final law take place.
