To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether it remains her Department’s policy to introduce a Zero Emission Vehicle Mandate by 2024 as set out in the Net Zero Strategy.
A zero emission vehicle (ZEV) mandate will increase the UK’s supply of ZEVs, create thousands of new jobs and put our industry at the forefront of this global transition. It will help reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, encourage new investments in infrastructure and improve consumer choice. A technical consultation on its design closed on 10 June and we are now analysing consultation responses. We will bring forward the Government’s response in due course.
