Britain plans to ban sales of petrol and diesel cars by 2030 It is reported that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will make an announcement in this regard in the coming days. The first decision was to ban conventional fuel vehicles by 2040 as part of efforts to reduce pollution. But last February, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that he would ban the sale of petrol-diesel cars from 2035. However, according to a report released by the Financial Times yesterday, such vehicles will be banned in the UK from 2030 onwards.
Maurice Johnson will make the announcement in his speech on Britain's environmental policy next week, according to the Financial Times. The BBC reported on a similar plan in the UK yesterday. However, there is no official confirmation about this. The 2030 ban may not apply to hybrid cars that use electric power as well as fuel. Such a vehicle will be allowed to sell until 2035. The ban on the sale of petrol-diesel cars is expected to make a big difference in the UK auto market.
According to figures released by the UK automotive industry, 73.6 per cent of all vehicles sold so far this year use conventional fuels. Sales of electric vehicles accounted for just 5.5 percent. Statistics indicate that the rest are hybrid vehicles.
