The majority of new cars bought in the UK in just over 10 years from now will need to electric if we are to meet targets to reduce greenhouse gases.
That’s the message to the Government from the Committee on Climate Change, the BBC is reporting today.
The committee says that the UK is cutting emissions faster than any other G7 nation, and we are set to follow France’s lead and ban petrol and diesel cars by 2040.
But members of the committee say that without earlier widespread adoption of electric vehicles, our carbon reduction targets will not be met.
We’d be interested in hearing what community members think.
Would you consider making an electric vehicle your next car buy? Should more be done to phase out petrol/diesel cars sooner?
