Tokyo : Japan plans to close its petrol car sales within the next 15 years with the goal of achieving its goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. According to Japanese media, Japan is set to unveil a new policy within the next week. According to a report in the Japanese newspaper Mainichi Shimbun without quoting sources, Japan has made sales of electric and hybrid vehicles its top priority. Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced last October that he would take the necessary steps to make Japan a carbon-neutral country by 2050. As soon as Prime Minister Suga announced his policy, big companies came under pressure to draft a plan to control carbon emissions. Japan plans to stop selling
Japan’s move has been welcomed by environmental engineers and the United Nations. Japan is still heavily dependent on fossil fuels. The government has not yet made public a detailed action plan on what fuels will be used as an alternative to biofuels. The government aims to increase sales of low-carbon cars (electric and hybrid) by 50-70 percent by 2030. In 2019, low-carbon car sales averaged 40 percent. Last September, the US state of California announced that cars sold in the state would be zero-emission by 2030. Meanwhile, the UK has come up with a more ambitious plan. The UK government has announced a ban on all petrol and diesel cars in the UK by 2030. Japan plans to stop selling.
