Could your next car be electric?

The UK Government has today (10th March 2021) published confirmation and clarification around the sale of vehicles in 2030 and beyond to help us meet our target of being net zero on greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Step 1 will see the phase out date for the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans brought forward to 2030.

Step 2 will see all new cars and vans be fully zero emission at the tailpipe from 2035.

Between 2030 and 2035, new cars and vans can be sold if they have significant zero emission capability, which would include some plug-in and full hybrids. The definition of significant zero emission capability will be consulted on later this year.

What’s your take on this? Have you already gone electric, perhaps you’ve gone hybrid? I know the BIK benefits over the last year or so have made the decision for many.

If you’re a company that works within logistics, how has this impacted your plan for the next 5-10 years?
