Will the 2030 ban cause diesel camper van prices to go down?

I'm considering buying a new Volkswagen T6 camper van. Will spend between £50,000 to £60,000 but am worried it will devalue lots as a fossil fuel vehicle. Especially with all the hype, restrictions now to go carbon zero. What is your advice?

Camper van values have traditionally been very robust against depreciation, However, since the pandemic, values have gone into overdrive. And all generations of the California are currently commanding strong money: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/vans-for-sale/campervans-mot.../

I don't think this will change in the foreseeable future, as the T3, T4 and T5 all have huge followings in the UK and Europe. If anything, the 2030 ban and the switch to electric could make the T6 a collector's item due to it being the last of its kind.
