According to Bloomberg’s report, British Transport Minister Grant Shapps said on Wednesday that the government of Prime Minister Boris Johnson was trying to end the sale of internal combustion engine cars by 2032, in order to achieve the zero emission target by 2050.
This decision was 3 years earlier than the 2035 target announced last week and this target was previously stated as 2040. In other words, the British government has banned the sale of internal combustion engine vehicles in the last 6 months to 8 years earlier!
Transport Minister Shapps told BBC Radio, “Last week, the Prime Minister announced that he would make this ban in 2035. However, in the last six months this period has been 8 years back. Because we had set the year 2040 as a target about six months ago. ”
This decision of the British Prime Minister is a decision that will seriously change manufacturers with an internal combustion engine and automobile sales in the UK. When the automobile sales of England in January 2020 are analyzed, the sales of hybrid vehicles are 13 thousand! Fully electric car sales are realized as 4054.
The ban on the sale of internal combustion engine vehicles will block its hybrid engine cars.
