To ask the Scottish Government what the impact will be on its climate change targets of its plan to decarbonise road transport by 2032.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 13 September 2017

As announced in the Programme for Government, we will increase efforts to support and promote electric vehicles to ensure that by 2032 there will be no need to purchase a petrol or diesel car or van. We will take the lead in decarbonising road transport to ensure Scotland remains at the forefront of the global low carbon transition. The final Climate Change Plan will reflect these new announcements, with publication in early 2018.
