India, Britain, France and Norway have all set dates to completely ditch petrol and diesel cars to get cleaner vehicles like electric cars and at least 10 other countries have also set targets. It would be great if New Zealand could set a goal like this as well. The benefits of this are that the air will be cleaner for us to breath because there will be no gasses coming from cars, this will also help reduce climate change, and we don’t have to drill for oil which is killing sea life. In the last few months New Zealanders have bought more electric cars than ever before, but we can do better.
