EU Policy Engagement

Together with partners and EV100 members, we are actively engaging the European Union to call for a legislation to accelerate the electric vehicle transition.

Our activities

We set up an EV100 EU Policy Working Group in 2020 to provide a forum for discussion on how we can, with our members, support policies that accelerate the EV transition across the EU. 

Supporting Transport & Environment's 2035 ICE phaseout campaign

In April 2021, we joined our partners at Transport & Environment to call for an EU-wide phase-out date for the sales for new internal combustion engine (ICE) passenger cars and vans by no later than 2035. 9 EV100 members also supported the call, including Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, Iberdrola, Ingka Group, LeasePlan, Lime, METRO AG, Novo Nordisk, Sky Group and Vattenfall.

EV100 letter to EU Commissioners on Fit for 55 Package

In May 2021, EV100 with the support of 10 EV100 members sent a letter to EU Commissioners to call for ambitious electric vehicle legislation as part of the Fit for 55 Package. As part of this letter, we advocated for: strengthened CO2 emission performance standards aligned with a phase-out date of new ICE vehicles for no later than 2035; revision of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive to support greater charging infrastructure deployment; exclusion of road transport from the EU Emissions Trading Scheme; among other policy recommendations. This letter was signed and supported by Energias de Portugal (EDP), E.ON, Iberdrola, Ingka Group (IKEA), LeasePlan, Lime, Novo Nordisk, Tesco, Unilever and Vattenfall.
