Sweden to Ban Petrol, Diesel Cars in Stockholm From 2025

Stockholm may be the first significant city to enact such a broad ban. Low-emission zones with daily entrance fees for vehicles with older combustion engines have been implemented in other cities, including London

In a new rule to be announced on Wednesday, an area of roughly 20 blocks that crosses the financial district and major shopping thoroughfares of the Swedish capital will only permit electric cars, some hybrid trucks, and fuel-cell vehicles.

In the first half of 2025, a decision regarding a zone expansion might be made.

Stockholm may be the first significant city to enact such a broad ban, which goes beyond Madrid’s, Paris’, Athens’, and Athens’ proposals to outlaw diesel vehicles.

Low-emission zones with daily entrance fees for vehicles with older combustion engines have been implemented in other cities, including London.

Local politician Lars Stromgren, who oversees traffic regulations, told the state television, “We want to create a better living environment for the people who live and work here.”

It remains to be seen if the proposal will truly increase sales of electric vehicles in Sweden.
