On February 14 local time, the European Parliament in Strasbourg approved it with 340 votes in favor, 279 votes against, and 21 abstentions. Minivan Zero Emissions Protocol. After that, the agreement will be adopted by the European Council and finally implemented. It is understood that the goal of the agreement is to stop the sale of new fuel cars and vans in the 27 EU countries in 2035. Based on the 15-year lifespan of ordinary household light-duty vehicles, the ban will ensure that the EU achieves zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
The EU countries will completely ban the sale of fuel vehicles in the future, which is a huge plan that has been planned for a long time and is based on environmental protection considerations. In our country, over the past few years, discussions on setting up a timetable for banning the sale of fuel vehicles have not stopped. Under the severe situation of global warming and the reality that the natural reserves of fossil energy required by fuel vehicles will be exhausted within a hundred years, the development of new energy vehicles is the general trend. In recent years, the Chinese government has introduced a package of policies from multiple levels to actively encourage the public to choose and consume new energy vehicles. According to the latest statistics released by the Ministry of Public Security in January this year, the number of new energy vehicles in my country reached 13.1 million, accounting for 4.10% of the total number of vehicles, a year-on-year increase of 67.13%, showing a high-speed growth trend. Among them, the number of pure electric vehicles is 10.45 million, accounting for 79.78% of the total number of new energy vehicles. In the future, new energy vehicles will gradually replace fuel vehicles and become the mainstream choice for public travel. This time, the European Parliament has clarified the timetable for banning the sale of fuel vehicles in EU countries, which will also affect the long-term setting plan of the timetable for banning the sale of fuel vehicles in my country to a certain extent. At this moment, we have to ask the question again: Are we ready to welcome new energy vehicles to replace fuel vehicles?
As the above data shows, the current new energy vehicles in my country are mainly pure electric vehicles, and these pure electric new energy vehicles almost all choose lithium-ion power batteries as the power supply. In the social news related to the consumption of new energy vehicles in recent years, the issue of the sharp reduction in the mileage of vehicles in winter caused by the characteristics of lithium-ion power batteries has continued to receive attention. Whether the charging piles are adequate or not is another important factor affecting the popularity of new energy vehicles. Fuel vehicles need to be refueled, and new energy vehicles need to be charged. It only takes a few minutes to refuel a fuel vehicle, but it takes hours to charge a new energy vehicle. With the gradual popularization of new energy vehicles, charging piles should be included in urban infrastructure construction to ensure that the number of charging piles matches the number of new energy vehicles in the city, and realize the common use of charging sockets and fast charging protocols. The reality is that it is difficult for charging piles to enter the community, and there is a contradiction in peak demand for charging piles in public areas. In particular, charging in expressway service areas is difficult, making many consumers define new energy vehicles as vehicles for urban commuting. The above problems are the most common and prominent problems in the popularization and development of new energy vehicles in recent years. In addition, the frequent spontaneous combustion incidents of new energy vehicles and the emergence of new car-making forces brought about by the low threshold of the industry all affect consumers' judgment and choice of new energy vehicles all the time, making some consumers more interested in new energy vehicles. There are concerns about the overall quality and other issues.
