UK to ban petrol, diesel cars from 2030 in green 'revolution'


  • Britain will ban the sale of new gasoline and diesel cars by 2030, a decade earlier than its previous commitment, the Prime Minister said 17 Nov.
  • Boris Johnson made the pledge as part of plans for a green industrial revolution that he claims could create up to 250,000 jobs in energy, transport and technology.
  • Automakers have expressed concern about the target, saying the previous goal of 2040 was already ambitious.
