After 10 years in Ireland should stop selling cars with traditional internal combustion engines, which will replace cars with all-electric power plants

Irish authorities intend by 2030 to completely ban the sale of new cars with gasoline and diesel engines in the country as part of the campaign to preserve the environment and switch to renewable energy sources. This is stated in the 145-page Climate Action Plane document published by the government.

According to the strategy, after 10 years in Ireland, sales of cars with traditional internal combustion engines, which will be replaced by cars with fully electric power plants, should stop. By 2030, the number of electric cars on the roads should reach 950 thousand units.

By the same date, up to 70% of the electricity consumed in the state should be generated using renewable sources – including wind generators and solar panels.

Recall the ban on the sale of gasoline and diesel cars intends to introduce the UK government, which is going to completely abandon cars with traditional internal combustion engines in 2040. In addition, at the moment the possibility of abandonment of cars with internal combustion engines is being considered in Germany, France, Norway, the Netherlands, India and other countries.
