BEIS Committee launches inquiry to explore barriers to EV sales
The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee has launched an inquiry into the role of electric vehicles and how best to remove barriers to their adoption.
The inquiry covers all electric vehicles and is inviting submissions on the support needed to progress the market including charging infrastructure as well as purchase costs and incentives to increase electric vehicle sales.
Iain Wright MP, chair of the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee, said: “As a Committee we want to investigate concerns that electric vehicle sales and roll-out are not as advanced as they should be and that people may be put off buying an electric car due to a postcode lottery of charging infrastructure, with the availability of charge points varying substantially across the country.”
