Is the UK´s ICE ban a good idea and is it doable in 2030?

Munich/Detroit, February 2021

here is no doubt that strong measures are needed to slow down climate change – some of them inevitably painful.

There is also no doubt that electric vehicles powered by renewable electricity can quite easily reduce climate-impacting emissions – more easily in some applications than in others.
We also see that electric vehicles are gaining increasing traction with car buyers in many global new car markets including the UK. Late in 2020 the UK government has announced a ban of combustion engine powered cars from 2030 – pulling ahead their original target date by five years.
However, a large uncertainty remains around how fast the transition should and can happen – and which roles governments need and should play in it.
In this article we want to discuss:
What does this ban really entail? Is it going to be effective?
And if not, what could or should be done instead?
