Emission free bikes to play key role in new Government plan

Motorcycles and scooters are set to play a key role in the freshly announced Government Transport Decarbonisation Plan, following years of behind the scenes campaigning from the Motorcycle Industry Association.

The Department for Transport announced the radical new plan earlier today, which pledges to end the sale of all new, non-zero emission road vehicles by 2040 at the latest, as well as phasing out the sale of all new non-zero emission heavy goods vehicles in that timeframe.

Whether than will mean a greater expanse of electrification, or further investment in synthetic fuels, MCIA chief executive Tony Campbell welcomes the plan and said: "The government has today laid down a long overdue marker, signalling not the end but the start of our next chapter."
