NFDA LOOKS FORWARD TO ADVANCEMENTS IN ELECTRIC VEHICLE TECHNOLOGYBack

EV3The NFDA is pleased by reports of advancements in the range electric vehicles can travel.

Several car manufacturers believe battery life will improve quickly in the next few years, making these vehicles a more attractive option for consumers, who worry about being caught out by their car running out of juice. Manufacturers are also trying to lower production costs to appeal to a broader range of consumers.

It is up to the Government to put in place the framework to allow consumers to take advantage of this green technology revolution. As the FT highlights this week, in Europe, electric vehicles still represent well below one per cent of sales. Recent SMMT figures indicate that in the UK there is a demand for greener, cleaner cars. The NFDA would like to encourage the Government to increase support for manufacturers and dealers of electric vehicles to make them a viable option for consumers.
