Plans for petrol and diesel plan to be brought forward – Business Motoring

THE Government could bring forward its ban on new fossil fuel vehicles from 2040 to 2030 to help speed up the rollout of electric vehicles across British roads.

The Guardian newspaper reported that Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to accelerate the shift to electric vehicles this autumn with an announcement to help trigger a green economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

The move follows assurances that the UK’s infrastructure will be ready to cope with the shift to electric cars.


The plan, which is backed by the government’s official advisers at the Committee on Climate Change, is likely to emerge alongside the national plans to become a carbon-neutral economy by the middle of the century.
