Tuesday 3rd March2015  - The last decade has seen the UK automotive industry make a gradual, but significant shift to low carbon vehicles. This has been driven by changes in policy at both the UK and EU level including targets set out in the UK Carbon Plan to provide infrastructure to support the shift to low carbon vehicles. Technological advancements have also led to a proliferation of choice and better efficiency of low carbon vehicles, further supporting a rise in public demand.
