Parliamentary inquiry into electric vehicles

10th April 2017

A House of Commons committee has launched an inquiry into barriers to electric vehicle take-up – and is inviting the industry to submit written submissions.

The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee’s Electric Vehicles: Developing the Market inquiry is looking for submissions on the key barriers to the development of the UK’s electric vehicle market, whether the government’s industrial strategy address the challenges and opportunities for electric vehicles, and what support should be put in place for purchase costs after 2018.

It also wishes to learn how the government can ensure consistent provision of charging infrastructure across the country, and for views on whether the government’s road transport decarbonisation strategy is flexible enough to adapt to potential trends like driverless cars.
