    In a statement made ahead of the launch, Mr Johnson said the ban on selling new petrol and diesel cars would come even earlier than 2035, if possible.
    Hybrid vehicles are also now being included in the proposals, which were originally announced in July 2017.
    People will only be able to buy electric or hydrogen cars and vans, once the ban comes into effect.
    The change in plans, which will be subject to a consultation, comes after experts warned the previous target date of 2040 would still leave old conventional cars on the roads following the clean-up date of 2050.
