Michael McLaren

Michael is joined by Behyad Jafari, CEO of the Electric Vehicle Council, who says the Government’s long-awaited Future Fuels strategy ignores the most important and effective measures to improve electric vehicle uptake.

 

‘The strategy will support and accelerate the rollout of some charging infrastructure. However it does not include subsidies, tax incentives, or sales targets.’

 

‘Crucially, it also fails to deliver minimum fuel efficiency standards, which have been used in the US and Europe for decades. Fuel efficiency standards require car manufacturers to sell vehicles with a combined level of emissions below a defined benchmark, encouraging the sale of zero emission vehicles.’

 

“There’s no sugar coating it, Future Fuels is a fizzer,” Mr Jafari said.
