The current Benefit in Kind (BiK) taxation structure is the single biggest driver of zero emission vehicle uptake in the UK. Low BiK rates for battery electric (BEV) cars has supercharged the company-provided vehicle market and democratised access to this expensive clean technology. Unfortunately, just as the zero-emission momentum builds, the tax foresight driving it is receding.
The BVRLA has launched the 2021 version of its annual Road to Zero Report Card which provides a traffic-light assessment of the decarbonisation trajectories of the UK’s car, van, and truck fleets.
With London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone due for a massive expansion next month, Christina Calderato, Head of Transport Strategy and Planning at Transport for London, tells members everything they need to know.
As the UK prepares to host the COP26 climate summit this November, the Government has launched a new app to help drivers to see which electric vehicles best suit their lifestyle.
Dangerous gaps have appeared in the fleet market’s road to zero, with some sectors accelerating towards the petrol and diesel phase-out and others stuck at a red signal.
The BVRLA’s upcoming Industry Outlook webinar - ‘A spotlight on commercial vehicles’ - will look at both the current state of the commercial vehicle market and its progress to decarbonisation.
The growing gap between different fleet segments’ abilities to decarbonise will be one of the key issues discussed at the upcoming BVRLA Fleets in Charge Conference on October 7th.
The BVRLA’s Learning & Development team’s aim is always to provide relevant, high quality, reasonably priced, innovative Learning & Development programmes for members.
The Government has published a Written Ministerial Statement to provide an update on the standstill approach to the Northern Ireland Protocol.
The BVRLA Fleet Sustainability Credentials show that the rental and leasing sectors are already leading the transition to cleaner transport. 100% of rented, leased and car club cars are Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) compliant and 99% of rented vans (96% of leased vans) are as well.
The 2021 edition of the BVRLA's annual Road to Zero Report Card not only assesses progress towards zero emission fleets in terms of EV supply, EV demand and charging infrastructure, but also for the first time compares progress for cars, vans and trucks.
Christina Calderato, Head of Transport Strategy and Planning at Transport for London writes to inform members of the where, when, and why of the ULEZ expansion from this October.
