ISRAEL: Diesel cars will not be available after 2030

Israel outlined a plan of transition from gasoline and diesel cars to electric and natural gas.

The country currently can’t boast any significant plug-in electric car sales share, but it’s gonna change.

Sales of new conventional gasoline and diesel cars will no longer be possible after 2030, said Israel’s Energy Minister.

To boost electric car sales, the government provides funds for 2,000 new charging stations. Also government intends to reduce taxation on electric cars(?!). 

Natural gas will become popular too, as Israel discovered huge deposits of natural gas and is willing to become energy independent.

Besides cars, also buses and trucks will be either electric or run on natural gas.

Approval of the plan is expected by the end of 2018.
