Reuters writes that German representatives wanted to be insured that polluting vehicles can still be sold brand new in the EU after 2035, should they run on e-fuels.

Frans Timmermans, head of EU climate policy, stated that "we have found an agreement with Germany on the future use of e-fuels in cars."

German Transport Minister Volker Wissing said that "vehicles with internal combustion engines can still be newly registered after 2035 if they fill up exclusively with CO2-neutral fuels."

While some climate activists were not happy with the decision, EU officials will have to give the final approval this Monday for the law to go into effect the following day.
