Following the announcement by the Prime Minister that the UK will end the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030. The Government will allow the sale of 'hybrid cars and vans that can drive a significant distance with no carbon coming out of the tailpipe until 2035’.
Louise Wallis, Head of the National Association of Motor Auctions (NAMA), commented: “Auctions will be supporting the UK automotive sector and work closely with dealers and fleets to enable the sector to meet the challenges of the phase out of new petrol and diesels cars and vans sales by 2030. Auctions and remarketing centres will invest in the facilities and in staff training and development to ensure that they can provide the services customers demand to remarket electric vehicles”.
