VTV.vn - European Union lawmakers have hammered out a deal to cut vehicle emissions by 35 percent by 2030, offering a further boon to the development of electric and hybrid cars.

Germany, which had insisted on a maximum 30 percent cut, relented after winning a concession to carry out an interim review of the rules. Germany’s stance had been backed by other car producing nations including Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.

Last week, the European parliament voted for a more ambitious 40 percent reduction by 2030. Ministers from the 28 nations will meet Wednesday onward with representatives from the European Parliament to work towards translating the recommendation into law.
