Climate Group responds to UK government’s ZEV mandate announcement

The Climate Group

Climate Group, alongside EV100 members and businesses in the UK Electric Fleets Coalition have joined together today to welcome the announcement of the introduction of a zero emission vehicle (ZEV) mandate by the UK government.

Helen Clarkson, CEO of the international non-profit Climate Group, comments:

“Alongside more than 30 leading UK businesses in the UK Electric Fleets Coalition, we’ve been calling for the government to adopt a zero emission vehicle (ZEV) mandate to offer clarity and certainty to businesses as they adopt EVs across their fleets. We welcome the UK government’s decision to implement a ZEV mandate as part of its Net Zero Review.

“With lack of vehicle supply one of the key barriers to EV uptake for fleet operators, a ZEV mandate will be crucial to accelerate the development and release of new electric vehicles. This measure will also help to make EVs more accessible and affordable for individuals in the coming years, as cars bought by businesses today will form the basis for the second-hand market of tomorrow.
