  • Mar.18.2018: Ban new petrol and diesel cars in 2030, not 2040, says thinktank. Green Alliance says ending UK sales earlier would close climate target gap and halve oil imports. Ministers have been urged to bring forward their 2040 ban on new diesel and petrol car sales by a decade, a move which the environmental thinktank said would almost halve oil imports and largely close the gap in the UK’s climate targets. The Green Alliance said a more ambitious deadline of 2030 is also needed to avoid the UK squandering its leadership on electric cars. Dustin Benton, policy director at Green Alliance, said: "The govt's recent industrial strategy cites clean growth as one of the biggest economic opportunities for the UK, but if we keep building and buying dirty cars we’ll miss the growth opportunity of the century". The car industry body, the SMMT, said outright bans on petrol and diesels risked harming the new car market Adam Vaughan, The Guardian.
