Too Slow, Too Many Cars: Can We Change the Electrification Roadmap?

8:30–9:30 a.m. G.M.T.
The Warehouse

The U.K.’s ban on new sales of internal combustion engines is fast approaching, prompting a surge in electric car sales and innovation. But when 2030 does arrive, it is estimated that up to 46 percent of all cars on British roads will still be running on petrol and diesel. Are current measures really enough, or do we need a quicker ban on fossil fuel car sales? Are consumers being equipped to make informed decisions? Amid all the noise about electric cars and their role in solving the climate emergency, where should we look for both urgency and clarity?
