UK to ban gasoline car sales by 2030

The UK is going to ban the sale of cars with internal combustion engines and hybrid powertrains in the country. This information was shared by the Financial Times portal, based on its sources.

According to the original plan of the British authorities, the ban on the sale of gasoline and diesel cars was supposed to come into force by 2040, but earlier this year it was decided to postpone the deadline by 5 years – to 2035.

The agency notes that now Prime Minister Boris Johnson plans to shift this date even closer – to 2030. He is expected to unveil a new plan next week. According to the interlocutors, the prime minister is aware of the ambitiousness of the plan, for this reason it cannot be ruled out that the dates will be adjusted by 2032, but he still wants to ban the sale of gasoline cars by 2030.

The Financial Times emphasizes that customers who have already bought hybrid cars will have to abandon such cars not by 2030, but by 2035, as previously stated.
