UK To Ban Sales Of Petrol Cars From 2035

Britain will bring forward a ban on sales of new petrol and diesel vehicles to 2035, including hybrids, Prime Minister Boris Johnson was to announce on Tuesday.



Johnson was to make the announcement at an event launching the 2019 United Nations Climate Change conference, COP26, which will be held in Glasgow in November. The changes bring forward the ban by five years — and now include hybrid vehicles.



Britain has pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, with a mixture of cuts and off-setting pollution measures such as planting trees. He also urged the government to cut the sales tax on electric vehicles to make them more affordable.
