Sales of new petrol and diesel cars are to be banned from 2030

Sales of new petrol and diesel cars are to be banned from 2030, 10 years earlier than planned.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to announce the ban later this week as part of green initiative package.

 New petrol and diesel cars in Britain were set to be banned in 2040 to reduce greenhouse emissions but was moved forward in February to 2035.

Editor-in-chief of Auto Express Steve Fowler said;

It’s no real surprise that the government has decided to bring forward the ban of internal combustion engine cars to 2030.

Mark Fowler added that the industry was “seeing that consumers really do want electrified cars, the experiences is great ,money savings currently are great.”

The Engrgy Savings Trust says that “driving 100 miles in a petrol or diesel car will cost around £13-16 in fuel, which can be three or four times more than the cost of charging the electric car.”

Industry experts say the move is hoped to increase the demand and market size for electric cars in the UK. 

The ban will be a significant part of the governments goal of net-zero emissions by 2050, roughly 30% percent of C02 emissions in the UK come from transport.
