Government failing to meet ULEV targets

According to an article in today’s Guardian online the government is failing to meet its pledge and targets on the take up of ultra low emission vehicles (ULEVs).

This is especially concerning when 38 out of 43 clean air zones are exceeding the limits on nitrogen oxides.

ULEVs should make up 9% by 2020. This is looking unlikely with the expected figure around half that. What is concerning is that car manufactures have increased the models of hybrids and ULEV’s ¬†available from 5 in 2011 to over 30 today, and 98% of motorway service stations now have electric charging points.

It would seem that more money and effort is being focused on economic benefits than environmental and health benefits of ULEV’s and hybrids.
