The air-quality package includes a further £1bn in ultra-low emissions vehicles including investing almost £100m in the UK's charging infrastructure and funding the "plug-in car" and "plug-in grant" schemes.
It follows a similar announcement earlier this month by the French government, while German cities including Stuttgart and Munich have also said they are considering banning some diesel vehicles. Although many electric vehicle owners have charging points at home, it is only possible if they have a driveway close to their house. "However, much depends on the cost of these new technologies and how willing consumers are to adopt battery, plug-in hybrid and hydrogen cars". "I know it's 23 years away but it is going to be a huge bill for both industry and consumers".
Projections from electric auto charging firm Chargemaster suggest that one million plug-in hybrid or electric cars will be on our roads by 2022, at which point they will account for 10% of all sales, and that by 2027 registrations of such vehicles will account for around 30% of new auto sales. BMW stated Tuesday that a fully-electric version of its Mini will be produced in Oxford in 2019 while Volvo said all new models of its vehicles will have electric motors by the same year.
"Dearman welcome the government's strong stance on diesel, which is necessary if we are to start tackling Britain's air pollution crisis".
India, which suffers from an especially acute air quality problem, is home to numerous world's most polluted cities.
A smaller targeted scrappage scheme could take place in the future, however and be aimed at diesels registered before 1 September 2015, with owners being paid up to £8000 to replace their cars with cleaner electric vehicles. For example, will we have the infrastructure to cater for all United Kingdom road users to drive electric vehicles in just 23 years? Campaign group ClientEarth warned that health issues "caused by exposure to illegal air pollution are happening now, so we need urgent action".
If the recommended measures are not sufficient to ensure legal compliance, local authorities can consider introducing restrictions on polluting vehicles using affected roads or introducing charging. In addition to a new goal for the city to operate a zero-emission public transit system by 2050, a new zero-emission zone for private vehicles will be established by 2025 that will eventually be expanded to encompass the entire city. One particular challenge is greener fuel for commercial vehicles and HGVs - where electric power is not sufficient for transport of food products for example.
