This report from UK think tank Green Alliance looks at the regulation needed to help switch consumers to zero emission vehicles. 

The government’s ambition to phase out petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030 must be translated into near term action.

As the transition to clean vehicles depends on an adequate supply of zero emission vehicles, further regulation is needed to ensure manufacturers increase sales and choice.

This report explains why accelerating the switch to battery electric vehicles with a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) mandate is crucial to cut emissions, save consumers money and futureproof UK industries and jobs.
