New diesel and petrol cars and vans will be banned in the UK from 2040 in a bid to tackle air pollution, the government is set to announce.
Ministers will also unveil a £255m fund to help councils tackle emissions from diesel vehicles, as part of a £3bn package of spending on air quality.
The government will later publish its clean air strategy, favouring electric cars, before a High Court deadline.
In Slojo's thread, another car manufacturer announced the manufacture of all electric cars.
If and it is a if, the technology, especially the battery technology, is good enough for all electric cars, why wait until 2040?
Fumes are choking the lungs of people today, why not ban new petrol and especially diesel vechicles sooner, say by 2030?
Even that's too far away. If the battery technology is good enough, should we not ban new petrol and diesel vehicles immediately?
