Ireland planning to ban registration of new ICE cars by 2030

Recommended Posts

Ireland is planning to ban the registration new of petrol and diesel cars by 2030. The legislation has been drafted. No big deal, it’s just progress.

But....

“The draft legislation aims to stop the granting of NCTs from 2045 for fossil fuel cars.”

NCT is the annual safety inspection test, more or less what you call “passing” in UAE. This could mean the death of the classic car scene, leaving only the option of having trailer queens to take to shows. This will also mean the death of rallying, which is held on closed public roads, where all cars are required to be road legal. For any normal person that likes to enjoy their petrol or diesel car on a daily basis, this effectively turns their car into a piece of scrap metal to be sold off according to weight.

No offence to these high shooters, as almost all countries are drafting similar 10-20-30 year plan on banning ICT but time will really make the history. Since over a decade now we have been hearing elctric car coming to take over the world and till date, infrastructure to support that "take over" is missing BIG TIME.

Yes exactly. Big dreams and aspirations but where will all the charging points be installed? How will the government cater for 4,000 people living in a stacked block of apartments? It’s a nice concept but it hasn’t been fully thought through.

For a second there I was like WTF! As I thought ICE was referring to In Car Entertainment.

And no more bass tube and pop up LCDs for Irish folk!

Banning ICE cars has far less to do with combating climate change than it has to do with wining elections. The green movement is growing by leaps and bounds, so what do governments do? They leverage the growth to win votes without telling people that the infrastructure to replace ICE cars will likely take another 100 years or more to build and install. The saddest part of all of this is that many people still tend to believe what their governments tell them.
