UK should bring 2040 petrol and diesel car ban forward 10 years, says thinkthank
Green Alliance says ending new sales of conventional cars by 2030 would close gap in climate targets and halve oil imports
Ministers have been urged to bring forward their 2040 ban on new diesel and petrol car sales by a decade, a move which an environmental thinktank said would almost halve oil imports and largely close the gap in the UK’s climate targets.
The Green Alliance said a more ambitious deadline of 2030 is also needed to avoid the UK squandering its leadership on electric cars.
