The European Union aims to have at least 30 million zero-emission vehicles on its roads by 2030, that’s according to a recent draft document seen by Reuters.

As the world continues to steer away from fossil fuel-based transport, the European Commission has laid out its plans on how to tackle the 25-percent of greenhouse gas emissions that come as a result of the transport sector.

Hitting the current climate targets will require “at least” 30 million zero-emission vehicles by 2030, the draft document read, a giant leap from the 1.8 million electric vehicles currently across Europe as of the end of last year.

Despite this high target, countries like France and Slovenia are leading the way having set out end dates for the sale of new fossil-fueled cars, a move set to be mirrored by many.

With only around 200,000 charging points across Europe as of the end of 2019, the EU document estimates that almost 3 million charging points and 1,000 hydrogen fuelling stations will be needed if its 2030 target is to be achieved.
