Scotland bans gasoline and diesel cars by 2032

Scotland will ban petrol and diesel cars by 2032. The government has pledged to remove new gasoline and diesel cars in the Scottish market as a plan to "expand large-scale" battery charging stations and set up pilot projects to encourage the absorption of electric vehicles.

Scottish high officials said the plan made the road truly for the first electric vehicle in the A9 Scotland and set aside funds to push for solutions to climate change. In July, the British government will stop production of gasoline and diesel cars by 2040 to reduce pollution.

"Our goal is to remove gasoline and diesel cars in Scotland by 2032," said Nicola Sturgeon.

The Scottish plan follows the steps that have been made by France, Germany and cities like Madrid, Mexico City and Athens. Governments say the commitment is necessary because of the unavoidable impact on poor air quality on public health.

"The government has a real commitment to all cars and vans on our roads is zero emissions by 2050. We require all new cars to be zero-emission vehicles by 2040," said Jesse Norman.

The London mayor, Sadiq Khan, has promised the entire London transport system will be zero emissions by 2050 and the "zero emission zone" by 2025. All taxis and minicab in the capital will become non-polluting by 2033 and the entire bus fleet will be zero emissions by 2037.
