Does a 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel cars make a real difference?

  Does a 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel cars make a real difference? There is plenty of evidence to suggest the accelerated ban will have very little impact on the new cars manufacturers would have been selling to us in 109 months' time anyway.After months of speculation, Boris Johnson has laid bare his ambitious plans to steer us all towards electric vehicles sooner than we thought - and many would like - by announcing an earlier date for the ban on the sale of new cars with petrol and diesel engines.

European sales of electrified cars overtook those of diesel for the first time ever in September. New diesel registrations have been declining across Europe since 2012, when they represented more than 50% of the new- car market according to a study by JATO Dynamics, which has been tracking

It's official, electrified cars are now more popular than diesels in Europe.

That's according to the latest data from industry analysts Jato Dynamics, which today reported that registrations of battery electric, plug-in hybrid and conventional hybrid cars overtook diesel for the first time on record in September.

One in four new models bought in 27 European nations were alternative-fuelled vehicles, though petrol remains well ahead with almost half the market share of registrations last month.

  Honda and Renault are latest to pull diesel cars from UK showrooms Automotive industry experts and analysts have given their verdict on the future of diesel in UK showrooms as demand for oil burners continues to wane.Last week, Ford confirmed that the Fiesta - the UK's most-bought new car for the last 11 years - will no longer be sold with a diesel option, despite it being the most economical engine available for the supermini.

It marks the first time in the modern era that alternative-fuelled vehicles have outsold one of the two internal combustion engine types but also signifies the substantial fall from grace for oil-burning engines.

Just five years ago, around the time the Dieselgate scandal hit headlines, diesel cars were the dominant force in Europe.

Overall, registrations climbed by 1.2 per cent year-on-year in September, with 1.3 million passenger cars bought across nations.

That's despite petrol and diesel suffering double-digit drops compared to September 2019.

In September, diesel made up just 24.8 per cent of vehicles registered on the continent, while petrol accounted for 47 per cent.

Hybrids are most likely to last the decade.With sales of new diesel, petrol and hybrid cars due to be banned in 2035 under current government directive, the next vehicle for many buyers will be their last to feature an internal combustion engine.

But in Europe , diesel passenger cars remain a major part of the auto industry: astonishingly, they still Meanwhile, a study of the latest diesel cars by the International Council for Clean Transportation (ICCT) says “The end of diesel would be a pretty big change in a relatively short period of time.”

Fuel oil supply to the diesel engine is provided from the oil tank through filters by two pumps driven by electric motors. Unlike sleeping cars , all coaches are cars with double row of seats and gangway between the rows. Toilets and compartments for the attendants are provided at each end of the coach.

Commenting on the change of guard for fuel types, Felipe Munoz, global analyst at Jato Dynamics said: 'The shift from ICEs to EVs is finally taking place.

'Although this is largely down to government policies and incentives, consumers are also now ready to adopt these new technologies.'

The car brands taking advantage of the electric switch
