A ban on sales of new petrol and diesel cars should be brought forward by eight years to 2032, MPs have said.
A report by Parliament’s business select committee warned that the government’s current plans to ensure all new cars are “effectively zero emission” by 2040 were “vague and unambitious”.

It is TOTALLY unrealistic to have a ban in place by 3032, in fact to be told what we can and can drive is totally wrong. I do not agree with EVs who is going to pay my training and at our time of life in the motor trade of over fourth years making our living repairing combustion engines, not forgetting the cost you will be charging to enter city with non EVs , if anything hydrogen is the way .October 30, 2018 at 3:31 pm #166372
Total electrification will result in large scale unemployment for both vehicle technicians and more so those working in the parts supply chain, just look at the massive list of parts we wont sell or fit to electric vehicles, it is massive, the industry needs time to get this right and prepare whilst many will need to redeploy or train rushing headlong will end in tears. It wont impact on the environment as we in the main generate dirty electricity in the UK with high carbon power stations .
