Netherlands could ban petrol and diesel cars in 10 years

Petrol and diesel cars could be off the streets of the Netherlands by 2025 with the Dutch parliament having set a date to discuss the ban.

Last update:

The Netherlands, a country traditionally conscious with the environment, follows the steps of Nordic European countries such as Norway, which have discussed similar bans on petrol and diesel-fuelled cars.

“We need to phase out CO2 emissions and we need to change our pattern of using fossil fuels if we want to save the Earth,” said Jan Vos, a Dutch Labour Party member, who is behind the initiative, as reported by RT News.

Before being accepted by parliament, the Dutch Labour Party´s initiative was altered to exclude vehicles currently in use, as it initially proposed a total ban of diesel and petro-fuelled vehicles.
