The UK Government have stated their intention that by 2040, all new cars and vans sold in the UK should be zero-emission. This would include the use of electric, plug-in hybrid or hydrogen vehicles.
The majority of UK drivers are on board with trying to tackle climate change. However, questions remain whether the UK is ready to move forward with the use of electric vehicles, as opposed to petrol and diesel-powered vehicles.
The main doubts stem from the overall reliability of Electric Vehicles, as well as the UK infrastructure in place to power these vehicles. There is a long way to go before the UK is reliant on Electric vehicles. There is a high level of investment required by the UK Government to ensure this switch to renewable vehicles is efficient and effective.
