THE UK HAS announced plans to phase out the selling of new petrol and diesel cars by 2040, just a few weeks after France unveiled similar proposals.

The plans aim to reduce air pollution and carbon emissions, by switching to more environmentally-friendly modes of transport.

Earlier this month, car manufacturer Volvo said it plans to phase out production of petrol-only cars in 2019, with all new models to be either electric or hybrid starting from that date.

So, today we’re asking you: Will your next car be an electric car?


Poll Results:

No, and I don't think I'll buy one for a long time (5706)
No, but maybe the next one after that (4574)
Yes (2074)
I don't drive (325)
