BVRLA members own and operate more than four million vehicles. They buy around 50% of all new vehicles sold each year and expect to have around 900,000 battery electric cars and vans on fleet by 2025.
Commenting on the launch of the Government’s transport decarbonisation ‘Greenprint’, BVRLA Chief Executive Gerry Keaney said:
‘The plans being launched today show the Government’s determination to deliver on its zero emission transport targets.
“The ambitious timescales involved in the phase-outs for the sale of polluting cars, vans and trucks leave little room for error. It is vital that the policymakers continue to engage with a wide cross-section of road users to understand the risks, challenges and opportunities that are being thrown up by this swift transition.
“Today’s ‘Greenprint’ provides some essential clarity and certainty for road users, but there are still major questions that need answering, including what longer-term plans the Government has for motoring taxation.”
