Petrol and Diesel Ban

Can you imagine the uproar if the government announced today it was phasing out petrol and diesel powered cars …

That’s what countries in Europe are doing.

Britain has announced it will phase them out after 2040 …

The moves are aimed at easing air pollution which European countries see as the biggest risk to public health.

Toyota is rumoured to be upping its development of electric cars … with new battery technology being developed which is lighter and goes further.

In a country as big as Australia could you ever phase-out diesel truck engines … maybe not until there’s a battery that lasts a long time!
