£40 Million To Drive Green Car Revolution Across UK Cities

News

Four UK cities have been awarded significant funds to promote green vehicle technology after successfully bidding for a share of a multi-million pot created to support the take-up of plug-in electric cars across the UK.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin announced the winners of the Go Ultra Low City Scheme, after the successful cities proposed a number of initiatives to support greener vehicles as part of a government competition.

The winning cities will deliver a rollout of cutting edge technology, such as rapid-charging hubs and street lighting that double as charge points, along with a range of innovative proposals that will give plug-in car owners extra local privileges such as access to bus lanes in city centres. Around 25,000 parking spaces will also be opened up for plug-in car owners saving commuters as much as £1,300 a year.

The funding has been awarded to cities which have designed schemes that will help encourage thousands of people to consider switching to a plug-in car. These proposals will support the UK's thriving green vehicle sector, improve air quality in urban hotspots and help the government meet its emission cutting targets.
