SPAIN is planning to propose a ban on the sale of petrol, diesel and hybrid cars from 2040 in an effort to cut greenhouse gas emissions according to government sources today (Tuesday).

In a draft document for a law on climate change it says: “From 2040, the registration and sale in Spain of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles that directly emit carbon dioxide will not be permitted.”

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s socialist government hopes to present to the law to parliament for approval by the end of the year.


Britain and France have already pledged to ban petrol and diesel cars from 2040.
