Europe has planned the end of the heat engine by 2035, but some models will have an additional recovery. According to the plan of the European Parliament, the most luxurious cars, these “supercars” whose basic price exceeds 200,000 euros, will benefit from the privilege of passing – shame! – for all electricity up to the senator train.
The so-called “Ferrari reform”, a text adopted June 8 states that manufacturers whose production is between 1,000 and 10,000 cars a year will not have to follow the mid-2030 target, which plans to reduce CO emissions.2 55% compared to 1990. These products will certainly have to comply with the carbon offset obligation, but only from 2036, one year after the deadline set for another automotive industry.
Until then, most luxury car buyers will be able to continue driving within the most powerful coupes powered by hydrocarbons mechanics. Companies whose production is less than 1,000 units per year such as Bugatti (Volkswagen group), Morgan or Koenigsegg of Sweden, for their part, will avoid coordinated sanctions.
Great presence of Italian MPs
At this time, vulgum will have to be converted to hybrid or electric and pay extra costs, in order to contribute to achieving joint goals of reducing CO2 emissions.2. Even though the “big car” represents only 0.2% of the market, such a message seems difficult to reconcile with building consensus on ecological change. Especially when, at the same time, Europe is emphasizing the need for a transitional democracy towards a more environmentally friendly mobility.
This preferential rule could benefit Lamborghini (8,500 cars per year), McLaren (4,000 cars in good years) and, theoretically, Rolls-Royce (5,500 sales in 2021). Despite its name, the amendment passed by the European Parliament should not, as it were, refer to Ferrari, unless there is a strategic change. The brand of running horses has begun a rapid increase in production, which represented 11,153 units by 2021, and is expected to reach 15,000 points by 2025, as part of a plan to increase up to about 40% of its molding rate.
A strong plea to support the unique rule uttered by Roberto Cingolani, Italy’s Transitional Minister for Ecology (and a former member of the Ferrari board of directors), no doubt contributed to linking these reforms to the Maranello company. Despite the large presence of Italian deputies among the signatories this proposal was adopted by a coalition of elected representatives from right, right, center and left.
