Britain is planning to ban the sales of new gasoline and diesel cars from 2035. Earlier, it was planned to ban the sales of new gasoline and diesel cars from 2040.
The hybrid vehicles will also be banned from 2035 in order to reduce air pollution and fossil fuel emissions.
In a statement, the UK government said that in order to fight the climate crisis, the decision to ban sales of new gasoline and diesel cars from 2035 has been taken.
The decision will also help the United Kingdom cut carbon emissions to “net zero” by 2050.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a speech in London: “We have a responsibility to our planet to lead.”
“There can be no greater responsibility than protecting our planet and no mission that a global Britain is prouder to serve. We know as a country, as a society, as a planet, as a species, we must now act.”
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced this at a launch event for a U.N. Climate Change Conference, known as COP26, planned for November in Glasgow, Scotland.
Gasoline, diesel and hybrid-power vehicles will be banned from 2035 in order to boost the sales of electric vehicles.
Automakers raised concerns as Mike Hawes, the chief executive of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, said that it is concerning that the government has seemingly moved the goalposts for consumers and industry on such a critical issue.
He said: “With current demand for this still expensive technology still just a fraction of sales, it’s clear that accelerating an already very challenging ambition will take more than industry investment.”
Not only Britain, but Norway and India are also planning to ban gasoline and diesel cars and only have electric cars in the future.
