In 2019 and in the coming years automotive manufacturers are spending billions in developing the next generation of vehicles.
The UK Government and others around the world are looking to significantly reduce their Carbon footprints and ultimately become CO2 neutral, electric vehicles in the automotive sector are just one of the industries which are vital to achieving these goals on a global scale.
Still accounting for a small percentage overall of UK Car sales, although demand has increased with better EV's becoming available with Tesla spearheading this evolution. Demand for electrified cars has surged particularly in the past four years, with registrations increasing from around 3500 in 2013 to almost 160,000 by the end of 2018 and this trend sets to surge much more over the next decade.

Vehicle Tax rates for electric cars are currently Zero, (unless the vehicle is priced over £40,000) which is a great incentive for purchasers to purchase electric vehicles rather than petrol/diesel. With more and more quality electric versions of existing models and new purpose developed electric models coming to the market, we expect to see a steep increase to the ratio of sales electric vehicles account for.
