Scotland to ‘phase out’ new petrol and diesel cars by 2032 | The Independent

The Scottish government has pledged to phase out new petrol and diesel cars and vans across Scotland by 2032, eight years ahead of the UK Government target.

In July, Britain said it would halt the production of new petrol and diesel cars from 2040 to cut pollution.

The SNP leader also said there were plans to make the A9 Scotland’s first fully electric-enabled road and that an innovation fund would be set up to encourage climate-change solutions such as charging vehicles in areas with a high concentration of tenements.
