New Electric Car Sales in UK

Hey, can you imagine that sales of battery electric vehicles are increasing more and more per year in UK as compared to plug in hybrids vehicles ?

As per analysis by Transport Correspondent, the sale of new petrol and diesel cars is due to be banned in UK from 2030, and hybrids by 2035 which indicates that most cars on road are either electric, use hydrogen fuel cells, or some non-fossil fuel technology in 2050.

UK Government strategy helps to meet its 2050 net zero target, where electric vehicles (EVs) will soon become the most common option for anyone wanting to buy a brand-new car.

The UK will need to expand spontaneously the existing network of 30,000 public charging points.

As per UK Government Plan by 2030, electric car charge points to overtake fuel pumps and charging point will reach 300,000.

By this way, we can reduce greenhouse gas emission and global warming effect on our planet. We can also make the switch to cleaner, zero emissions cars, and that is why we continue to support the growth of our world-leading electric car and charging network.

Leeds Air Quality during Covid19 lockdown period and without Covid19 lockdown period

 

Do you remember the quiet days of lockdown when the air was clear and easy to breathe? Those days in 2020 were literally a breath of fresh air to asthma sufferers, when they didn’t have to worry about air quality.

Air pollution is the dangerous effect on an environmental health as well as on human health, which can cause/aggravate conditions such as acid rain, reducing sunlight, reducing ozone layer, global warming effect and long-term health effects from air pollution include heart disease, lung cancer, and respiratory diseases and sometimes birth issues.

During Covid 19 lockdown, we had clean air but these days, no one can imagine that how air quality is degraded day by day and to demolish our natural environment as well as our future generation.

New-Blog-1

The above Figure – 1(New-Blog 1) show that the during national lockdown period in the Leeds after 23rd March 2020, the concentration of NO2 pollutant was in decreasing trend due to less generation of NO2 pollutant from fuel vehicles, industrial activities, and construction vehicles, when we compare this Figure – 2. The total average concentration of NO2 pollutant was 21.60 microgram per cubic meter in the March month of the year 2020 (Figure – 1) and 30.80 microgram per cubic meter during this present March month of the year 2022 (Figure – 2). we can see that air pollution has increased substantially compared to the lockdown in March 2020.

So, everyone should have to wake up at an early stage for the real value and importance of our air quality. We can improve this situation by adopting more fleet vehicles, using more public transport, walking and cycling, increased awareness and fighting  against air pollution and  run campaigns on how to prevent air pollution etc and by this way, we should have to encourage people for the prevention of air pollution and to save our planet.
