Johnson comes under fire from sacked climate conference boss

Johnson comes under fire from sacked climate conference boss”

The vehicle ban was originally announced in July 2017 as part of the government's clean air initiative, but - in a move that was welcomed by the auto industry - it emerged in 2018 that hybrid vehicles would not be included in the ban.

David Cameron turned down an offer from Prime Minister Boris Johnson to head the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow in November, it has emerged. "As a country and as a society, as a planet, as a species, we must now act". 2020 must be the year we turn the tide on global warming- it will be the year when we choose a cleaner, greener future for all.

Many European countries already have plans for a similar ban by 2035.

The UK government is changing its plans with regard to banning the sale of diesel and petrol vehicles, after its existing timeline was criticised for being too conservative to meet the overall target of carbon neutrality by 2050.

Shapps said: "This Government's £1.5 billion strategy to make owning an electric vehicle as easy as possible is working - a year ago alone, a fully electric auto was sold every 15 minutes".

Hybrid auto owners have been given a "kick in the face" by ministers, motoring bodies have said, as they warned that the surprise decision to ban the vehicles from sale in 2035 will "backfire".

Any ban on gasoline and diesel powered cars could have a serious impact on the German auto industry.

"It's extremely concerning that government has seemingly moved the goalposts for consumers and industry on such a critical issue", he said.

Chief executive Mike Hawes said that "accelerating an already very challenging ambition will take more than industry investment".

Gasoline, diesel and hybrid vehicles would be banished to the used auto market in the accelerated timeline.

"We welcome the Government's proposals to bring forward the target for the ending of the sale of IC-engine cars from 2040 to 2035" said Mr Eastlake. He added: "We must question whether we will have a sufficient supply of a full cross-section of zero- emissions vehicles in less than 15 years". The timing is what we need to pin down.

Gas and diesel vehicles still make up 90 percent of sales in Britain, though demand for electric cars has grown.

The association called for "significant investment" in a charging infrastructure on forecourts, and said the policy change was largely uncosted and over-reliant on driveway charging points that many drivers can not access.

"A more ambitious target should be the catalyst for faster change, but there are clearly many hurdles to cross".

"Manufacturers face a great challenge in switching their production from conventional powertrains to cleaner electric technology". He also raised concerns that hybrids would be excluded from sale under the plans.

Another possible impediment to consumer adoption of electric vehicles is the fact that now available United Kingdom electric vehicle grants are scheduled to go away in March 2020.

"Our business campaign for the 100% adoption of electric vehicles by 2030, EV100, has 62 corporate members, many of which are British, including AstraZeneca, BT, Centrica, Foxtons, Mitie, RBS, SSE and Unilever".

Take the light auto, for example; the cost of producing an affordable compact hatchback with a petrol or diesel drivetrain has been driven up in recent years as carmakers are forced to meet emissions caps on its entire range.
