UK Car CO2 Regulations: Going nowhere fast

Car CO2 regulations are key to driving the supply of electric vehicles in the UK. This short paper highlights a growing risk the UK will have no regulations in place at the start of 2021 and as a result supplies of electric cars to the UK will dry up. It also highlights that the proposed regulation will lead to about a fifth less EVs being sold in the UK than is likely to have been sold if we remained a part of the existing EU scheme because of the way the Government has drafted the new rules. The Government is urged to: urgently table a corrected regulation before the end of October.
