DIESEL cars could soon be outlawed in Madrid, if the PSOE mayoral candidate gets his way.
Antonio Miguel Carmona has promised that, if elected in May, he will ‘eliminate’ diesel vehicles in the country’s capital by 2020.
Carmona claims that the current measures put in place by mayor Ana Botella (PP) are ‘insufficient’ and that ‘more should be done’.
“I want our capital to be environmentally in line with other forward-thinking countries,” said Carmona.
Botella is not against a ban on diesel cars but said it is ‘unrealistic’ to rid the city of diesel cars entirely in the next five years.
