More and more countries are moving towards a future ban on the sale of cars equipped with internal combustion engines. Today came the information that Britain plans to introduce its ban Until 2030 instead of 2040. The plan is to implement the decision before the end of the year.
More countries share the attitude towards petrol and diesel cars. In Norway, the promised country of electric cars, Parliament decided to ban new car sales from fossil cars as early as 2025. The Netherlands is another European country that has also achieved successful sales of electric cars. Here, all new cars must be completely zero-emissions from 2030.
In the United States, 28 companies have united to lobby for sales of new fossil-free cars from 2030. The group calls itself ZETA and its members include power players such as Tesla, Rivian, Lucid Motors, ABB, Siemens and Uber.
Other countries in Europe that are considering or have already decided to ban by 2030 include Denmark, Iceland, Slovenia and Ireland. Spain and France set the target by 2040.
Sweden may be banned in 2030
In Sweden, a similar ban is being investigated. The original proposal was to ban all new petrol and diesel cars by 2030. The government appointed an investigation Which will look at how and when to implement the ban. The result will be announced on June 1, 2021.
Sweden will be the world’s first fossil free welfare country. The transport sector accounts for a third of Sweden’s greenhouse gas emissions and therefore plays an important role in climate change, says Finance and Housing Minister Per Polund.
Similar discussions are taking place at the EU level. Until a complete ban, they will also work more actively to make it easier for those who are actively working for change.
