‘World first’ zero-emission zone for Oxford

The city and county councils are to consult on banning the internal combustion engine for a widening series of vehicles from 2020

The buses going through Oxford's George Street would have to be zero-emission in 2025

Oxford plans to introduce the first ‘zero-emission zone’ (ZEZ) in the world from 2020, effectively banning the internal combustion engine.
