Questions about what will happen with the diesel vehicle ban for Britain

News that diesel and petrol cars and vans will be banned in Britain from 2040 as part of efforts to tackle air pollution has hit headlines everywhere. Whilst many welcome any measures which help combat pollution and improve air quality, it raises many questions in terms of how it will be implemented.

For example, will Britain have the infrastructure to cater for all UK road users to drive electric vehicles in just 23 years? This will mean getting rid of all fuel stations and installing enough public charging points across the country. Whilst this would be a significant achievement and very logically progressive, the practicalities and costs of implementing this will be in the billions of Euros.

With the UK diesel scrappage scheme announcement on the horizon, how the Government plans to subsidise petrol and diesel vehicle owners and encourage this shift towards greener vehicles will be interesting to note.
