The Scottish government has said it wants the country’s towns and cities to be free of emissions from petrol and diesel vehicles by 2050.
It has published a “roadmap” setting out its plans to help businesses and motorists switch to electric vehicles.
The government is to spend more than £14m over the next two years replacing its fleet of petrol and diesel vehicles with electric alternatives.
It will also install charging points at all of its main buildings.
The Switched On Scotland document was produced alongside experts from industry, academia and environmental bodies, and sets out the plan to drive forward the uptake of electric vehicles in Scotland.
Among its commitments are that by 2050, Scottish towns, cities and communities will be free from the “damaging effects” of petrol and diesel fuelled vehicles.
