Banning sales of pure gasoline vehicles by 2035 decided in various countries
Based on the Paris Agreement, which was adopted in 2015 to curb climate change, more than 120 countries and regions have begun efforts to achieve carbon neutrality. The goal was to ban the sale of pure gasoline engine cars by the end of the year.
Countries and regions other than Japan have also set targets to ban the sale of new vehicles equipped with gasoline engines by 2030 or 2040, and are promoting the switch to electric vehicles that do not emit carbon dioxide while driving.

Wyoming to Ban Electric Vehicle Sales by 2035?
On January 13, 2023 local time in the state of Wyoming, USA, we will go against the trend of switching to electric vehicles. A joint resolution was submitted.
Located in the western part of the United States, Wyoming, whose main industry is the production of oil and gas, fears that the spread of electric vehicles will adversely affect Wyoming’s economy and employment.
Wyoming’s road network, combined with a lack of infrastructure, has made it impossible for electric vehicles to spread, he said, and the raw materials used to make the batteries used in electric vehicles is a critical mineral that is in limited supply and may run out. This is due to their inclusion and the difficulty of recycling or disposing of important minerals.
As a result, the submitted document included text such as “ We encourage the phasing out of new sales of electric vehicles in Wyoming by 2035 and state it as a goal ”.
