RAC comments on Go Ultra Low Scheme announcement

Four cities have been awarded significant funds today to promote green vehicle technology after successfully bidding for a share of the Government's multi-million Go Ultra Low City Scheme fund to support the take-up of plug-in electric cars across the UK.

RAC chief engineer David Bizley said: “We welcome the extra money to upgrade charging infrastructure. The RAC believes it is important that motorists see the benefits of electric vehicles and investing in the necessary infrastructure in cities and across the network will surely help to give motorists more confidence in switching to a greener vehicle.

“At a time when, in order to meet air quality targets, proposals have been announced that will lead to the establishment of low emissions zones in a number of our towns cities, this announcement is a timely reminder that the most effective means of improving air quality is to accelerate the take-up of ultra low and zero emissions vehicles.”
