Fossil fuel-powered vehicles may soon begin disappearing from roads in the United Kingdom.

Britain's clean air strategy released earlier this month calls for an end to the sale of new gas and diesel cars by 2040, just as automakers such as Volvo Cars and Toyota Motor Corp. (TM - Get Report) have announced a greater focus on electric vehicles, which release zero emissions. The U.K. government will also grant more than 200 million pounds, or $260 million, to local governments to reduce air pollution.

France has also set a 2040 target to end the sale of traditional cars, as a part of Paris climate change accord of which Britain is also a member. Norway has set a deadline to sell only electric cars starting in 2025, and India plans to do so by 2030.

Automotive manufacturers have made several big announcements recently about increasing the accessibility of electric vehicles. Earlier this month, Volvo announced all of its vehicles will carry an electric engine by 2019. Shortly after, the Model 3, Tesla Inc.'s (TSLA - Get Report) first vehicle built for the masses with a $35,000 starting price, began production.

Toyota has said it is developing a solid-state battery that could provide twice the range of electric vehicles using lithium-ion batteries and be able to charge in minutes, The Wall Street Journal reported.

For now, the 2018 model-year vehicle lineup boasts several anticipated vehicles, a few of which are electric or are available as hybrids. Here are a dozen such cars.

The coupe runs the power through its front wheels by way of a proper short-throw six-speed manual transmission (with no automatic offered) and a helical limited-slip differential; it rides and handles adeptly via an adaptive suspension, and stops on the proverbial 10-cent piece with a solid set of Brembo brakes. And yes, there's a giant-wing spoiler at the rear for the sake of both visceral and visual appeal.
