The United Kingdom will stop selling cars with a combustion engine earlier

New petrol and diesel cars and the hybrid variants may no longer be sold in the United Kingdom from 2035 onwards. That is five years earlier than planned.

The introduction of the ban has been highlighted in the fight against air pollution. This was announced on Tuesday in the run-up to the COP26 conference, a climate meeting held in the United Kingdom.

The sales ban in the UK is a victory for the electric car and a blow to oil-producing countries. Diesel cars in particular have been under more fire since 2015 as a result of the Volkswagen scandal. In addition, the standards in the European Union for emissions are also becoming stricter.

In France, a ban on the sale of new cars that run on petrol or diesel will apply from 2040, and Norway will endeavor that by 2025 new cars will no longer emit harmful substances.
