Department of Energy & Climate Change
The UK Government is committed to supporting the transition to Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) and to securing the benefits that will flow from this in the short, medium and long term.
The Government aims to both stimulate and accommodate the expected growth in ULEVs. Funding of £400m has been made available over the lifetime of this Parliament to do this, including support for the purchase of eligible vehicles and the installation of recharging points throughout the UK. In addition, a programme of research and development is supporting the advancement of this new generation of vehicles and helping embed ULEV-related skills and knowledge in the UK.
