Drivers believe petrol cars should be banned sooner than 2035
According to Tech Digest, 82% of drivers believe that the Government should bring the banning of petrol and diesel vehicles forward to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions.
The Electric Vehicle Association (EVA), recently launched a new campaign to represent the interests of current and prospective electric vehicle drivers in England.
Over 1,000 drivers took part in the survey, with 65% of respondents saying they support the 2030 plan to ban petrol and diesel vehicles.
Of those surveyed, 96% believe that if the Government were to bring forward the 2030 phase-out of petrol and diesel vehicles, public health will also improve.
Participants also favoured the possible scrappage scheme, grants and loans to help petrol and diesel drivers to make the energy efficient switch.
As a result, EVA England will now attempt to encourage the Government to bring forward the existing ban, helping to phase out petrol and diesel cars and vans before 2030.

With the petrol and diesel ban bought forward, it will help to protect the environment against climate change and support the move to using battery as the principal power source by 2025. EGO’s aim is to encourage all industries to adopt cleaner energy alternatives by using the technology already available to do so. With a collaborative approach, the journey to significantly reducing emissions and noise in the environment will be much quicker.
