​Yesterday’s State Opening of the UK’s Parliament featured additional backing for the EV sector

Yesterday’s State Opening of the UK’s Parliament featured additional backing for the EV sector with the Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill.

The new bill was among the government’s latest proposals for what they will consider passing into law within the next 2 years. The legislation wants to ensure that the United Kingdom remains a “world leader” in the electric vehicle industry.

The new bill wishes to increase the amount of electric or hydrogen vehicle charging points at major motorway services and fuel retailers.

Another key point of the legislation is improved accessibility to allow drivers of EV’s to charges on any network they choose.

Currently, there are over 100,000 vehicles in the United Kingdom which benefit from the governments Plug-in Car Grant and the government is saying it will commit to another £600 million spend during this Parliament to support the growing zero or ultra-low emission market.
