Reuters: UK to ban sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030: FT. https://www.reuters.com/article/bri...ol-and-diesel-cars-from-2030-ft-idUSKBN27U0DG
Looks like hybrids will be the loophole if you actually read the article.
Furthermore, today's hybrids are already excellent and getting better. Ford is coming out with a Hybrid 400+ HP F150.
Yes … they can have a very large footprint too … One thing horizontally drilled gas wells can do is cluster the wellheads close together whereas the vertical wells were very scatteredI hope they are planning on doubling or tripling the electric grid capacity to power their total electric transportation system. And what source of energy will power those electric plants? EV's are not "pollution free". They just move the source of pollution to a fixed plant. Even wind and solar create "eye pollution" by visually polluting the landscape with massive windmills and solar arrays.
As well, let's look at the true costs of solar and wind including subsidies as well as actual output not just rated output.EV's are not "pollution free".

Does the Tesla even take tires?Yeah, solar is really dumb.
In the past year and a half I've paid $10 per month, or less, to be hooked up to the PGE grid. $0 for the actual electricity. And in the summer I now blast the AC like never before.
It increased the value of our house, even though the house value is 99% based on zip code.
Tesla gas and maintenance cost, $0. Other cars, oil, gas, plugs, brakes, stuff, lotsa money.
America can lead in the EV and renewable energy industries or let someone else.
I appreciate and learn from people's information regarding costs, efficiency, etc., but to an extent I find them cherry picking. I can cherry pick too.
Subsidies? Name a gas company or car maker who hasn't had subsidies. Tesla paid back loans that others have not.
Efficiency? Depends on the car and use case.
No wind or sun? Batteries are seeing more installations.
It seems almost simple – all you need to do is connect a number of hydrogen atoms to one helium atom, and there you have cheap and clean energy. The sun has been doing it for five billion years.
