AUTUMN STATEMENT 2013: Investment for electric vehicles on public sector fleets

Date: 05 December 2013   |   Author: Jack Carfrae

The Government is to invest £5m in readying public sector fleets for electric vehicle adoption.

The money will be invested during 2014 and 2015 in what is described as a "large scale electric vehicle readiness programme for public sector fleets".

The move is intended to promote the uptake of ultra-low emissions vehicles to show "clear leadership by the public sector to encourage future widespread acceptance".
