MPs call for ban on petrol and diesel car sales by 2032

UK risks falling behind global switch to electric vehicles with
‘unambitious’ target of 2040, says committee

MPs have urged ministers to bring forward their ban on new
petrol and diesel car sales by eight years to 2032, to avoid the UK
being left “in the passenger seat” in the global switch to
electric vehicles.

Government
plans for a 2040 ban on fossil fuel-powered cars and vans

across Britain were unambitious and did not even show leadership
within the UK, given
Scotland has set itself an earlier target
, the business, energy
and industrial strategy committee said.
