A cross-party group of 42 Parliamentarians countersigned a letter from Neil Parish MP, calling upon the Chancellor to use the 2018 Budget to stimulate the uptake of electric vehicles.
The BVRLA, along with other leading transport, business and environmental organisations submitted a joint letter to the Chancellor making a pre-Budget 2018 plea for tax incentives to drive the uptake of electric vehicles.
The BVRLA Fleet Sustainability Credentials show that the rental and leasing sectors are already leading the transition to cleaner transport. The new data shows 94% of the BVRLA car rental fleet and 75% of leased cars are Clean Air Zone (CAZ) compliant just fifteen months before the first zones are expected to begin operating. These figures are well ahead of the average for all UK cars, where only 57% meet CAZ emission requirements.
