    Netherlands proposes banning gas, diesel car sales by 2025

    What are the odds you'll live to see a world, or even a country, with a transportation sector free from fossil fuel consumption? What are the odds of it happening by 2025?

    In the Netherlands, a group of politicians has proposed the country ban the sale of all new gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles in less than a decade. Holland's labor party, the Partij van de Arbeid (PvdA), wants to make a complete shift to emissions-free vehicles, and the motion was approved by the Dutch parliament's lower house, the House of Representatives (Tweede Kamer). Under the proposal, even hybrids and plug-in hybrids would be excluded from sale beginning in 2025. That would leave just battery electric and fuel cell vehicles as the only legal options. In addition to the ban on vehicle emissions, the proposal also pushes the Dutch government to ease the country's traffic problems by investing heavily in autonomous vehicles.

    I'll go out on a limb and say something this drastic wont get passed, but I thought it news worthy for the simple fact that legislation like this is starting to pop up and will eventually get passed in some country. Good thing Detroit seems to be competitive in this area, especially vs. the European competition.

    Or perhaps the Netherlands will improve upon their already excellent public transportation and bicycling infrastructure (in addition to increasing adoption of EVs and autonomous vehicles).
    My modes of transportation: CityBus Greater Lafayette, rental cars (usually GM), bicycling, and walking.

    Let the consumers decide. If nobody wants gas/diesel cars, there's no need to ban it.

    Daily Telegraph....

    London will follow Paris and ban diesel cars, campaigners warn

    Pollution is so high in the capital, and diesel fumes so damaging, experts believe Boris Johnson will follow Paris' lead and ban the cars from London's roads within the decade.

    London will follow Paris and introduce an outright ban on diesel cars which are causing "serious health damage" in the capital, campaigners warn.

    The Mayor of Paris has announced radical plans to ban diesel cars from the French capital by 2020 due to concerns about how much pollution the cars cause.

    Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, is also grappling with the issue of how to tackle pollution from the fuels fumes which contain tiny particles and nitrogen oxides and have been increasingly proven to be seriously damaging to health.

    France, which has the highest number of diesel cars on the road, will now ban the cars out right with Anne Hidalgo, the Parisian Mayor pledging "an end to diesel in Paris in 2020".

    She also said the city would have more semi-pedestrianised areas with special zones introduced at weekends

    Everybody used to love tuning-up cars & smell drink gasoline were petrol heads in Europe when cars oozed classic character - charm - charisma, then along come dull boring bland anodyne souless cars in Europe, now every body hates cars want to ban them, can't say l blame them l would rather cycle like most people now do in Holland. Mustang kool is a bit to late to save carmakers from the extreme left in the EU.

    No kid growing up in the EU aspires to want to own a dull bland European car they are being taxed off the road by lefties. Fun-to-drive cars are banned in Europe by anodyne Opel!! They have brought this on themselves. I love Opel they are a GM brand, but they don't have one single car in the line-up l would ever consider buying ever. Opel have burned through $20 billions in Europe doing this dull anodyne car thing, now the dutch are going to ban then, Tesla will be laughing all the way to the bank in the Netherlands.









    Humble RWD Escort from a time when Europe used love cars were petrol heads when Ford of Europe were at their most profitable, what followed was 20,000,000 sales the best selling ever American company car ever, though the last FWD Escort were as dull as ditchwater described by Clarkson as a beancounters special the biggest pile of crap ever made due to corners had been cut to bare minimum even the stuffing in the seat had been hacked out and it showed, cheap plastic snapped of easily everywhere.

    No and that is not what the report says. The report says that the Labor Party in the Netherlands proposes the ban of sales of fossil-fueled vehicles by 2025. The proposed legislation does not ban the ownership of fossil-fueled vehicles.

    So, the citizens of the Netherlands won't have fossil-fueled vehicles but the tourists from the neighboring countries can. Or does one leave his motor vehicle at the border? And what happens when the wind blows from the neighboring countries? Will the EU administration need to get involved?
