The Department for Transport (DfT) consists of a central Department (DfTc) and four Executive Agencies:

The Government Fleet Commitment (GFC) commits 100% of central government car fleets to be Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) by 2030, with an interim target of 25% by 2022. The central Department with its Agencies have already exceeded the interim GFC target for 2022, having 31% ULEV cars (383 of 1,233).

In total, the central Department with its Agencies has 1,927 vehicles, of which 20% (388) are ULEVs and 2% (36) are fully electric vehicles.
