GM vows to stop making petrol and diesel cars by 2035

US auto giant General Motors has vowed to ditch petrol and diesel from all its light-duty vehicle offerings by 2035, it announced on Thursday (US time), just days after president Joe Biden said he would convert the entire governmnt fleet to electric.
