Energy Saving Trust September newsletter - Phasing out petrol and diesel vehicles

Scotland to phase out new diesel and petrol vehicles by 2032

The Scottish Government has announced a target to phase out the use of petrol and diesel vehicles by 2032, alongside proposals to establish four low emission zones by 2020. The ambition to 'end the need' for new petrol and diesel vehicles will be encouraged through investment in infrastructure for electric vehicles and other low emission vehicles, the Scottish Government has suggested.
