Originally, the ban was due to come into effect in 2040 and in February of this year was moved to 2035 but according to the Financial Times, (based on unnamed Government sources) the Prime Minister wants to encourage the growth in the market for electric cars in the UK.
This is part of a strategy to achieve climate change targets by 2050.
