Funds are flowing when it comes to electric vehicles backed investments, they are stopping at nothing to develop our transportation. EV investments stand at more than £9.3 million to encourage motorists to switch to electric cars. The UK will be the leader in the EVs design with the hope they will produce cleaner air in our UK's cities. The EV investments are a positive step towards independence from pollution and urban mobility.
Transport ministers launch EV investments
The decision towards these investments are due to the slow uptake among motorists. This is partly owing to the initial high cost of buying an electric car. Even though there has been a £5,000 grant towards EVs, they have still been costly to buy. Furthermore, motorists have been sceptical to throw their hard-earned cash at something so new there is no real proven history for reliability.
It is hoped the EV investments will produce ultra-low emissions by 2050 with the UK being at the global forefront. There will be no competition between plug-in EVs and hydrogen cars, the government plans to support both since the goal is carbon-free driving.
The government's EV investments infrastructure aims to promote more carbon-free cars. During the last three years, we have seen an increase in plug-in EVs, some of which are the Nissan Leaf, Vauxhall Ampera and the BMW i3. Other manufacturers such as Renault, Toyota and Vauxhall are also supporting the ultra-low emission motoring.
The EV investments intend to increase charging points across the UK in a bid to help motorists become greener. Furthermore, they will be installed in areas where there are no ports currently available, this will enable all motorist's easy access to charging their cars freely. It is also believed that work forces and motorway service stations will have these rapid chargers installed. The goal of these new rapid charging points will be to fully charge EVs within 30 minutes.
