The Scottish government is planning to end the need for petrol and diesel vehicles by 2032 by taking a range of actions.
These include expanding the charging network and making the A9 Scotland’s first electric-enabled highway.
A fund of £60 million will be made available to accelerate innovation in new technologies, including low carbon and digital projects.
It will support the development of low carbon energy infrastructure, such as electricity battery storage, sustainable heating systems and electric vehicle charging.
Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, said: “I want us to be world leaders in developing new low carbon energy technologies and embrace social changes that will reduce our emissions.
“We have set out a bold new ambition on ultra-low emission vehicles, including electric cars and vans, with a target to phase out the need for petrol and diesel vehicles by 2032, underpinned by a range of actions to expand the charging network, support innovative approaches and encourage the public sector to lead the way.”
