UK to ban sales of diesel and petrol cars from 2030
Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, announced on Wednesday that he will ban the sale of cars and vans with diesel and gasoline engines from 2030. The decision comes ten years earlier than expected.
However, the government said that hybrid vehicles capable of traveling “significant distances without emitting carbon dioxide” will continue to be sold until 2035.
The government plans to invest £ 1.3 billion in accelerating theexpansion of charging electric points, around 1.45 billion euros.
The measure is part of an environmental panel, the details of which will be released today, with which Johnson wants to “create and support” 250 thousand jobs in the United Kingdom, which in 2021 will receive in Glasgow the 26th Conference of the Parties of the Organization of the United United Nations on Climate, the so-called COP26.
