UK to Ban Sales of new petrol and diesel cars by 2035
A ban on sales of polluting diesel and petrol cars could be brought forward by five years to 2035, it was reported today, as Boris Johnson seeks to burnish his green credentials.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced a desire to speed up the current plan for a prohibition which would favour electric replacements by 2040 at last year’s Tory party conference in Manchester.
But following the election win in December plans are underway to move it forward by five years, leaving electric cars the only new option for motorists, the Sun reported.
A public consultation could be released shortly, as well as plans to cut down on wider plastics use.
