Germany's government is refusing to agree to European Union plans to effectively ban the sale of new cars with combustion engines from 2035, according to Finance Minister Christian Lindner.In its bid to cut planet-warming emissions by 55 per cent by 2030 from 1990 levels, the European Commission has proposed a 100 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions from new cars by 2035.

That means it would be impossible to sell combustion engine cars from then.European Parliament lawmakers backed the proposals this month, before negotiations with EU countries on the final law took place.Speaking at an event hosted by Germany's BDI industry association, Lindner said there would continue to be opportunities for combustion engines.
