UK 'should' follow suit as New Zealand announces crackdown on petrol and diesel cars


“On the question of whether the UK should look to implement something similar, the answer is unequivocally ‘yes’.“

The announcement from the New Zealand Government has caused some to call them the “Norway of the Pacific”.

They have a scheme in place, similar to the UK Government’s plug-in grant scheme, which gives drivers money off an electric car.

The car must cost less than NZ$80,000 (£40,944), with drivers receiving a NZ$7,500 (£3,838) grant to go towards the cost of the car.
