A group which represents Irish car dealers has said that confusion over Government plans to a petrol and diesel car sale ban in 2030 is holding back any hopes of recovery in the car market. Worryingly for those in the car sales business, 42 per cent said that plans for the 2030 ban would deter them from buying a new combustion-engined car in the next five years. By 2021 the average new car on Irish roads will emit 28 per cent fewer car emissions than the current fleet” said Murphy.

Despite lab results showing significant drops in CO2 emissions, the real-world CO2 of cars on the road barely changed in the last decade.
