The Scottish Government has said it will take action to phase out petrol and diesel vehicles by 2032.
The move comes as part of a wider set of priorities for the next year to ensure the country is “seizing the opportunities of the low carbon revolution”.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said tackling climate change was a moral obligation.
Measures to do this include accelerating the development of a charging network across the country, storing carbon in the North Sea and introducing a deposit return and recycling scheme for drinks containers.
Scotland will also introduce new energy efficiency standards for the private rented sector to help lower fuel bills and establish a Scottish National Investment Bank to deliver financial support for innovative industries including the low carbon sector.
