Rental and leased vehicles are significantly less polluting, and by 2025 the fleet industry will be registering 400,000 battery electric cars and vans each year - equating to 80% of sales in the UK. The Treasury has a tremendous opportunity to accelerate this process and accentuate the results with smart use of the current motor taxation regime.
