To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of how the reduction of the plug-in vehicle grant will effect meeting their carbon reduction targets.
No such assessment has been made. The Plug-in Car Grant has helped the plug-in hybrid market become more established, and the Government will now focus its support on zero emission models like pure electric and hydrogen fuel cell cars. We want to see at least 50%, and as many as 70%, of new car sales being ultra low emission by 2030. This is in line with the Committee for Climate Change progress report. The Government will continue to work with industry to achieve our ambitions, and will review progress towards them by 2025.
