Europe's move to effectively end sales by 2035 of new internal-combustion-engine vehicles across the entire 27-country bloc that’s home to 448 million Europeans, is part of an ongoing transportation revolution that aims to simultaneously reduce greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution and noise pollution, while increasing livability in urban areas, including the implementation of designs for “15-minute cities,” where daily necessities are located mere steps away from homes.
