The European Union has agreed to ban the sale of cars with internal combustion engines (ICE) that emit carbon dioxide by 2035. The agreement, postponed for several weeks by German Transport Minister Volker Wissing, was reached by energy ministers from 27 countries.

A compromise was reached between Brussels and Berlin that will allow the sale of cars and vans that run on so-called climate-neutral e-fuel, which in turn use synthetic fuel.

According to Western media reports, the move is an attempt by the European Union to curb carbon dioxide emissions, which have a serious impact on global warming and many dangerous effects on the planet.

The transportation sector accounts for about 25 percent of EU emissions.

"The new rules aim to reduce emissions from road transport, which represent the highest share of emissions of all modes of transport. They will also provide the impetus to move the auto industry to zero emissions, continuing to provide an innovative approach", the document said.

Opponents of the new regulation fear that the EU's decision could lead to higher car prices. German luxury sports car maker Porsche and Italian manufacturer Ferrari say the batteries needed for electric cars would be too heavy for their cars. Western media reports that other car makers, such as Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and Ford, are already betting on electric cars.
