“We can’t afford to wait until 2040 for most new vehicles to be zero-emission.

“Pollution from road traffic is a major cause of air pollution and climate change – industry must be challenged to clean up its act far sooner.

“Norway is aiming for all new cars to have zero emissions by 2025, and India has a 2030 target – so why can’t the UK act quicker?”
