Ireland will ban the sale of diesel and gasoline carsJanuary 1, 2020
Now the local government is developing new laws and regulations to bring a complete ban on cars on internal combustion engines until 2030. The ban will be established on the registration of new cars.
According to unofficial sources, the Irish government seriously intended to introduce a ban on cars with internal combustion engines. By 2030, it is planned to completely close the registration of gasoline and diesel models. Irish Minister of Climate Action Richard Bruton is already working on a project to be submitted for approval at the start of the new year.
The final bill will be prepared jointly with other departments. In addition, within ten years it is planned to introduce about 1 million electric cars into the local car park. The law will be included in the 2019 Climate Change Amendment Bill and will be presented at the same time as Ireland’s announcement of major investments in electric vehicle infrastructure across the country. As part of these measures, a network of road charging stations will be actively developed, as well as subsidizing the installation of home chargers.
Ireland has ambitious environmental revolution plans around the world. By 2050, she wants to become carbon neutral. In other words, she wants to produce as much oxygen as carbon dioxide.
The ban on new gasoline and diesel vehicles is radical in itself. It requires a gradual introduction, as well as the active development of infrastructure.
