Transport Minister Andrew Jones has praised the significant investments made by UK companies in electric vehicle fleets, as part of a business summit held in London recently. Company bosses received substantial praise for adopting Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) as part of the summit, which was hosted by the government-backed Go Ultra Low campaign. Mr Jones said: 'UK businesses have a crucial role to play in driving the growth of the UK's electric vehicle market; two thirds of ultra-low emission cars registered in the UK this year were bought for fleet and business use. 'We want to make electric vehicles the natural choice for all motorists, and the faith placed in this technology by UK businesses is helping to change attitudes and boost demand. 'Company bosses recognise that electric vehicles are good for business and good for Britain, and we want the general public to follow their example.î Analysis from Go Ultra Low found that 20,992 ULEVs were registered between January and September this year, an increase of 138.5 per cent over the numbers from 2014.æ ULEV market share grew to just over 1 per cent of the market during the first nine months of 2015, and the government has estimated that 5 per cent of new car registrations should be ultra-low emission by 2020. More than 64 per cent of the registrations to take place were made by UK businesses, highlighting just how much they were contributing to the growth of the market.
