Fraikin has published a free executive summary of the Government’s Road to Zero strategy to help operators understand key targets in the report and the impact on their fleet.
Launched in July, the Government white paper sets out an “ambition” that by 2030, at least 50% – and as many as 70% – of new car sales will be ultra-low emission, alongside up to 40% of new vans. This builds on ambitions reiterated in the clean air strategy last summer that the sale of ‘conventional’ petrol and diesel vehicles would be banned from 2040 and follows ongoing calls, including from city leaders, for the 2040 target to be brought forwards.
The Fraikin guide sets out the government plans and explores the potential impact on vans and HGVs.
James Walker, commercial director at Fraikin, says: “Central to the Road to Zero report are ambitious plans to encourage the widespread adoption of low and zero emissions vehicles.
“At Fraikin, we want to be leading the discussion on how the industry transfers from diesel to gas or electric drivetrains. Producing this executive summary is just one of the many steps we’ve taken to ensure we’re best placed to help our customers.”
