What exactly is happening and when?
From 1 January 2030, it’ll no longer be possible to buy or lease a new car or van in the UK that’s powered solely by fossil fuels. Some self-charging and plug-in hybrids will still be allowed until 2035, as long as they’re capable of travelling significant distances on electric power alone.
After that point, only new sales of cars and vans that are “fully zero emission at the tailpipe” will be allowed. So from 2035 the only new cars and vans allowed will be electric vehicles (EVs) and those powered by hydrogen fuel cells. (Though it will still be possible to sell (and buy) used ICE vehicles and hybrids after that.)
The ban’s only a couple of fleet replacement cycles away, so now’s the ideal time to get your whole business thinking about it.
