New petrol and diesel vehicle sales will be banned by the government starting in 2030, and hybrid vehicle sales will follow in 2035. The ban on petrol and diesel is anticipated to lower greenhouse gas emissions and enhance air quality. There are many different types of hybrids, but between 2030 and 2035, only those that can go a significant distance without emitting any emissions will be allowed to be sold.
From 2030, diesel vans will be added, and diesel lorries will be phased out. Used petrol and diesel cars will still be sold after 2030 and used hybrids after 2035 because the restriction only applies to the sales of new cars.
As demand declines and additional cities outside of London implement ultra-low-emission zones, resale values of conventional combustion engines are anticipated to suffer.
