05 July 24 Press releases

All too often in the recent past, we’ve seen short term political advantage prioritised at the expense of the serious long-term decision-making the country needs to meet net zero goals. Given the size of their mandate, we’d like to see Labour do more to support the transition to greener vehicles. That means protecting the existing salary sacrifice and BIK incentives to support the new electric car market, and targeted financial incentives on used electric cars to support greater adoption.

Key spokesperson

Ian Plummer

Commercial Director


Ian continued:

“We also need to be proactive and transparent about future changes in road pricing and taxes for electric cars so consumers can plan accordingly, as well as supporting the industry to install more chargers by speeding up planning and encouraging more creative ways to charge EVs near people’s homes.”
