UK Government to Ban Sale of Diesel and Petrol Cars from 2035

Government Plans to Achieve Zero Carbon Emission by 2050


The UK has announced that it will ban the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles from 2035.

The plan is part of the government’s aim to achieve its target of emitting virtually zero carbon by 2050.

The policy was announced by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson as part of a launch event for a United Nations climate summit in November.

The summit, known as COP26, will be hosted in Glasgow.

Mr. Johnson said the ban on the sale of the vehicles would come even earlier than 2035, if possible.

People will have the option of buying hybrid or hydrogen cars once the ban comes into effect.
