Italy considers banning all diesel and petrol cars


The Italian Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Enrico Giovannini said in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that the government will soon take a decision on banning the operation of cars powered by diesel or gasoline engines, adding that the ban will be implemented from 2040 at the latest.
And the Bloomberg news agency quoted the minister as saying that car manufacturers will be part of the government’s plan to reach this goal, as the plan will include large stimulus programs to encourage citizens to get rid of old cars and buy environmentally friendly cars.
A number of European countries had announced similar plans, as France decided to ban the sale of petrol or diesel cars from 2040, while Britain decided to ban these cars from 2035, five years before France.
