This Government’s mission is to put the UK at the forefront of the design and manufacturing of zero emission vehicles, for all new cars and vans to be effectively zero emission by 2040 and to end the sale of new conventional petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2040. The Road to Zero Strategy sets out a clear pathway to zero emissions, to give clarity and certainty to both industry and motorists.
