Diesel engines, how long till they are banned?

Councils are already charging hefty prices to drive / park your desire engined car in their area...

When will diesels be banned? And before that, when will diesel cars become too much of a burden financially to own?

Re: Diesel engines, how long till they are banned?

Some cities may restrict older diesels, but I'd be surprised if any new restrictions were too punitive for new cars. I'd say current diesels are good for ten years, with restrictions on use and probably increased parking charges and other taxes to discourage people buying new ones. Possibly the m.o.t. will be tweaked to take smokers off the road.

I can't believe anyone in their right mind would buy a new one now.
