Future of Fleets Manifesto 2024

The next General Election must take place before the end of January 2025. The time is therefore ripe for the vehicle rental and leasing sectors to set out the steps required from Government over the coming years in order to secure the transition to zero emission road transport.

 The BVRLA's 2024 'Future of Fleets Manifesto' focuses on three key themes, broken down into nine crucial, tangible actions the Government must take post the General Election to secure the transition to zero emission road transport. 

Certainty: Reinforce the foundations

1. Lock in the ZEV MandateIndustry needs to trust the goal posts won’t move

2. Publish a transport tax road mapConfirm the future of VED, fuel duty, and benefit-in-kind

3. Develop and update detailed plansFrom trucks to charging, long-term strategic pathways are needed

Focus: Support Commercial Vehicles

4. Increased fiscal support - The maths doesn’t add up, buyers need more help

5. Remove regulatory barriersNeed full alignment of 4.25t ZEVs with diesel vans

6. Improve chargingPublic and private networks don’t work for vans and trucks

Fairness: Leave none behind

7. Support used ZEVs - To open the transition to all, more consumer help is needed

8. Unlock the rental sectorRental is overlooked but has a pivotal role in delivering decarbonisation

9. Cheaper, better chargingWe need more public chargers with cheaper rates
