Why 2020 will be ‘make or break’ year for diesel

  Why 2020 will be ‘make or break’ year for diesel Diesel’s difficult journey over the last few years may be about to come to a head, with some claiming 2020 will be 'make or break' for the under-fire fuel.

A ban on selling new petrol , diesel or hybrid cars in the UK will be brought forward from 2040 to 2035 at the latest, under government plans. In a statement made ahead of the launch, Mr Johnson said the ban on selling new petrol and diesel cars would come even earlier than 2035 , if possible.

Today’s announcement that the 2040 ban on selling new petrol- and diesel-engined cars will be brought forward to 2035 – and will now include hybrids – has been welcomed by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership.

“We welcome the government’s proposals to bring forward the target for the ending of the sale of IC-engine cars from 2040 to 2035,” said LowCVP MD Andy Eastlake.

“The target will be challenging for industry and drivers, but if we are to meet the 2050 net zero commitment, we must raise our level of ambition in road transport.

As Birmingham plans to stop vehicles driving through the city, we reveal the areas set to ban cars or have a low emission zone within three years

  As Birmingham plans to stop vehicles driving through the city, we reveal the areas set to ban cars or have a low emission zone within three years Some 20 UK towns and cities either have plans in place for low emission zones or vehicle bans, or have already implemented restrictions on vehicle use in their area. Here's what they have proposed.Birmingham City Council is the latest to publish its draft transport plan, which is highlighted by a proposal to ban car users from making 'through trips' to get from one side of city to the other and a 20mph limit on all residential roads.

The UK is bringing forward its ban on the sale of fossil fuel cars by five years. Originally, legislation stipulated that the sale of petrol and diesel would be banned by 2040. Now that date has been pulled forward to 2035 , with Prime Minister Boris Johnson saying the ban would come into effect even earlier

The plan to ban petrol and diesel cars has been brought forward five years. Prime minister Boris Johnson on Tuesday will announce that a vehicle ban designed to tackle carbon emissions will be brought forward to 2035 , and will now include hybrids in addition to petrol and diesel cars.

“The intent from Government is to give some real clarity on this target and to really gather the widest views before responding in the summer.”

Transition could be sooner if feasible

  • Tyre emissions 1,000 times WORSE than exhausts

In its statement, the government said if the transition to zero-emission car sales was possible sooner, they could bring it forward again.

Eastlake refers to this in his statement, saying “We believe that in this proposal ‘zero means zero’; the desire is for all new cars and vans to emit nothing under all circumstances as soon as feasible”.

2035 ban: how it could work

Drivers are currently faced with electric cars that are notably more expensive than internal combustion (ICE) counterparts, plus a charging infrastructure that’s difficult to trust. But LowCVP presents some reasons to believe the 2035 ban is feasible, in spite of these drawbacks.

The Government will consult on bringing forward a planned ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles. The ban , which Government advisers the Committee on Climate Change have called for by as early as 2030, will also include hybrid vehicles for the first time.

“A number of challenges, but also opportunities” are presented by the bringing forward of the ban, Eastlake adds.

In terms of price, electric cars could soon be much cheaper. LowCVP cites a fall in battery prices indicating that EVs could achieve price parity with conventional cars within five years.

It says EVs are already very appealing for many drivers, already offering viable range figures and price points, as well as savings on fuel and tax. The government also cited the surge in EV popularity in its announcement.

“This government’s £1.5bn strategy to make owning an electric vehicle as easy as possible is working – last year alone, a fully electric car was sold every 15 minutes,” said Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps.

UK boosts climate effort by banning new gas vehicles by 2035

  UK boosts climate effort by banning new gas vehicles by 2035 LONDON (AP) — Britain announced Tuesday that it plans to ban the sale of new gas and diesel cars by 2035 — five years earlier than its previous target — in a bid to speed up efforts to tackle climate change. The announcement was timed to coincide with the launch of Britain's plans for the United Nations' climate summit, known as COP26, which is scheduled to be held in Glasgow in November.

Eastlake continues: “There’s a big job to be done; by the manufacturers in switching over production facilities over a short timescale and by organisations like LowCVP and others in making sure drivers, the energy system and key market players are fully prepared for the electric transition.

“This shortened target will heighten ambition and focus minds to meet the challenges ahead.”

What isn’t discussed of course, is the frustration within the car industry about the inclusion of hybrids in the ban, especially after so much has been invested.
