Response from Italy for ERT: Christian Mavris
The Italian car industry is turning the page. As part of the plan to phase out carbon emissions, the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Ecological Transition (Cite) has decided that Italy will no longer produce thermal engines for its cars.
In particular, this decision was taken in the presence of the Ministers of Ecological Transition, Sustainable Infrastructure and Mobility, and Economic Development, and essentially aims to ensure that all vehicles on Italian roads are powered by electric or hydrogen engines.
This change should be completed by 2035 and it is a historic decision, which, although it is radically changing a significant part of Italian industry, on the other hand does not set the framework for a larger plan of the European Commission.
