UK plans to ban sales of all petrol and diesel cars from 2040 on as part of a move to tackle air pollution. 

The sales ban, which will not include hybrid cars, has been conformed by the UK government, which also plans to eradicate ICE cars from British roads from 2050.

British government estimates that poor air quality causes health problems, which annually cause additional 2,7 billion BBP loss in productivity. The UK government also plans to introduce more 'clean air zones' across the country and the possible agenda also brings a scheme to scrap old diesels, replacing them with hybrids, PHEVs or EVs. Additional tax on diesel vehicles could be introduced in 2020.
