With the UK’s proposed ban on petrol and diesel cars looming, automaker Fiat has announced it will be going all-electric and will work on removing all fully fossil-fuel-powered cars from its lineup in the country, set to come into effect from July 1.
As part of a modernisation stint in 2021, it electrified more than 60% of its lineup, it claims, meaning many models have at least one electrified variant on offer. But this year, the Italian firm is set to remove all non-electric models from its offering – becoming the first automaker in the UK to do so.
The UK has vowed to ban the sale of fully petrol or diesel-powered vehicles by 2030 as part of its wider plans to decarbonise the industry by 2050.
