Environmental association Zero has called for new cars sold in Portugal to be 100% electric from 2035.

A study released today by the association said 100% electric cars will be cheaper than conventional ones in 2030. In a statement, Zero states that a drop in the price of batteries and a shift to manufacturing platforms dedicated to electric vehicles by builders will allow for "great reductions" in production costs.
