New car sales of gasoline cars to be banned by 2030 Uk government November 18 at 10:51
The UK government has announced plans to ban the sale of new gasoline and diesel vehicles by 2030 to strengthen global warming countermeasures and to focus on the spread of electric vehicles.
The British government announced today that it will ban the sale of new gasoline and diesel vehicles by 2030, five years ahead of previous plans.
The company also said it would ban the sale of new vehicles for hybrid vehicles in 2035, and instead will boost the spread of electric vehicles and other vehicles by maintaining charging stations and assisting in purchasing them.
Since the UNITED Nations conference on global warming countermeasures , COP26, will be held in the UK next year, Prime Minister Johnson said, “The recovery of the global environment and the economy must have a close relationship. This is an ambitious plan for the Green Industrial Revolution.”
The sale of new vehicles such as gasoline cars will be banned by California in the United States by 2035 and France by 2040, and the EU-European Union plans to further regulate the environment of cars next year.
As regulations on automobiles have become stricter around the world, manufacturers are accelerating their shift to electric vehicles, but in order to spread the technology, in addition to lowering sales prices and improving infrastructure, there are still various issues such as improving the distance that can be traveled at one time.
Industry group “Sharing Government Policy”
Commenting on the plan, Mike Hoaz, chairman of the British Automobile Manufacturers Association, which also has Japanese manufacturers such as Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co., Ltd., commented, “We share the government’s policy of being to become a leader in decarbonization in road transport.”
On top of that, he said, “The success of the plan depends on whether consumers can buy new cars and charge them as easily as gasoline,” and he indicated that the industry would work with the government to promote electric vehicles and other vehicles.
