"Getting to 100% will require a huge effort across the entire supply chain, as well as ensuring that enough fast charging infrastructure is available to Denmark, for example, has proposed a phase-out of new diesel and petrol car sales in 2030. And Norway, long recognized as a world leader in the adoption of electric vehicles, wants all new light vans and passenger cars sold to be zero emission by the year 2025. Back in the U . K .

The UK 's planned ban on sales of new petrol , diesel or hybrid cars could start as early as 2032, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has said. Once the ban comes into effect, only electric or hydrogen cars and vans will be available. Hybrid vehicles are now included in the proposals, which were originally announced in July 2017. Despite this, RAC spokesman Simon Williams said: "While the government appears to be constantly moving the goalposts forward for ending the sale of new petrol , diesel and hybrid vehicles, drivers should not be worried about opting for a plug-in hybrid now.

The sale of new petrol and diesel cars will be banned in the UK from 2030.

Between 2030 and 2035, new cars and vans can be sold if they have the capability to drive a ‘significant distance’ with zero emissions, although the government hasn’t confirmed what constitutes a significant distance.

A few manufacturers have announced plans to stop selling petrol and diesel cars ahead of the ban. We reveal the story so far.

When will petrol and diesel cars be banned? The ban is being introduced in 2035 - five years earlier than previously planned.

The ban is also being expanded to hybrid cars and plug-in So the ban on conventional car sales will certainly help move the UK towards the net-zero target the government announced in 2019. The Committee on Climate Change, which advises government, said if other countries followed the UK , there was a 50-50 chance of staying below the

Boris Johnson announced the measures as part of a “green industrial revolution” that he believes will create new jobs in a low carbon 6. Will I be forced to scrap my car in 2030? No, the ban is only on the sale of new combustion engine cars – those already on the road will still be legal to own and drive.
