Sweden prohibits the police from driving anything but electric cars

From next year, the police and all other public bodies in Sweden may only buy hybrid or pure electric cars. And already in 2026, nothing but electric cars may be bought.

In 2019, Sweden's then Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said that the country would ban all new diesel and petrol cars by 2030.

But as early as 2026, the country's police must take the first step. On 1 January that year, it will be forbidden for the Police to buy anything other than new electric cars.

But already from 1 January 2025, the Swedish police must completely disregard pure petrol and diesel cars. Pure electric or hybrid cars must be chosen, because the latter will also be banned in 2026.

This is written by Swedish Auto Motor and Sport .

– The decision (the ban, ed.) gives state authorities and companies clear and long-term conditions regarding the conversion of the state's fleet of coring vehicles towards zero emissions, says Infrastructure and Housing Minister Andreas Carlson in a press release.

According to the Swedish media, the country's government has not published any exceptions to the ban. This means that the emergency services and the military will also have to switch to electric-powered vehicles from 2026.

Sweden is not the only country in a hurry to ban fossil fuel cars. Overall, the EU countries currently want to get rid of all new diesel and petrol cars by 2035 at the latest.

In the West African country of Ethiopia, however, they are ready to go even further, and already now. However, the fact that the country wants to ban new fossil-fuel cars has nothing to do with environmental considerations. Read more about it here.
