Joint letter to Chancellor from Environment and transport groups

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 letter makes it clear that taxation policy is a critical lever in stimulating demand for electric vehicles and therefore urges the Chancellor to bring forward the company car tax reduction to 2% in April 2019, rather than maintaining the current plan to increase it to 16% in 2019/20, before falling to 2% in 2010/21.
