House of Lords | Environment and Climate Change Committee February 2024

The Lords Committee has rightly grasped the urgency of putting the electric transition back on track and instilling confidence with drivers, because after the Government delayed its ban on new petrol and diesel sales last September more than a third of consumers said they would never go electric. That means ending the unfairness of higher VAT on public charging, for example, and restoring grants in a targeted fashion to make electric vehicle ownership a viable option for everyone. EVs need to be accessible to all, so we welcome this report and urge the government to act.”
