Honda has announced a plan to phase out all diesel car sales in Europe by 2021, making due on a promise it made earlier this year to make all of its European cars electric vehicles or hybrids by 2025. The European Union has set a benchmark that requires car manufacturers to cut carbon dioxide emissions to a fleet average of 95 grams per kilometer by 2021, so Honda’s proposed schedule will be aligned with this change.

Honda doesn’t have as big of a lineup of electric vehicles as its competitors like Toyota, but the automaker says it will be launching a production version of its E concept vehicle in Europe sometime in the near future after displaying a model at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show.

Honda is just one of many companies working through how to cope with the changing automotive landscape when it comes to diesel. According to Engadget, Toyota has made a decision to focus on its hybrid vehicles in Europe, Fiat Chrysler plans to rid many of its cars of diesel by 2022 following an emissions test scandal, and Porsche has already announced that it will no longer be offering diesel vehicles.

This news also comes at the same time that Volkswagen‘s current CEO is being hit with Dieselgate criminal charges, so the German automaker will likely need to develop a game plan in this area soon.

In other automotive news, Tesla is currently working on a battery that can stay charged for one million miles.
