Uk Petrol and diesel ban forward to 2032

UK Petrol and diesel ban should come forward to 2032 and include hybrids, say MPs
Exhaust emissions

Cross-party Select Committee says zero emissions should mean zero emissions; blasts 2040 Road to Zero strategy as “ambiguous”

Sales of new cars with any kind of petrol or diesel engine should be banned by 2032, according to a cross-party group of MPs – a move the automotive industry has called “nigh on impossible” to achieve.

Current Government policy – set out in the Road to Zero strategy – says “conventional” petrol and diesel cars should be banned by 2040, and only cars that are “effectively” zero emissions should be sold by that date - leaving the door open for new plug-in hybrids to be sold past 2040.



But the Business, Energy and industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee – a cross-party group of MPs from the Labour, Conservative, and Scottish National parties – recommends not only that the 2040 date should be brought forward to 2032, but that new plug-in hybrids should also be banned from sale. Experts say this would require consumer demand for zero-emission vehicles to increase by 17,000% in a little over a decade.

The BEIS report claims, however, that “zero should mean zero”, and urges the Government to set a “precise target for sales of new cars and vans to be truly zero emission by 2032.” This would leave only ‘pure’ electric cars (EVs) like the Nissan Leaf and any future hydrogen cars, like the Hyundai Nexo, on sale in new car showrooms.

Would someone please crack nuclear fusion so that we have unlimited power to run a few great big plants to recover the crap out of the atmosphere that my V8 is pumping out.

The cost of a couple of fusion reactors and associated atmospheric recovery plants will be a whole lot less that rebuilding the whole carbon fuel supply chain!
