Government Taking Action On Low Carbon Vehicles

Ambitious plans to widen the use of electric vehicles were unveiled by Stewart Stevenson today.

A consultation on the roll out of low carbon vehicles proposes twin targets for 100% use of low carbon vehicles by public sector vehicles by 2020 a national target of 30% for other road users

The consultation seeks to identify what building blocks are required to achieve widespread adoption of low carbon vehicles across Scotland.

The Minister said:

“Government must back up its world leading climate change targets with action and this consultation does just that. Emissions from transport have been increasing in recent years and a major uptake of low carbon vehicle technologies is required to reverse this trend.

“We all have a role to play in tackling climate change but the public sector must be seen to set the standard. This 2020 target will not only ensure that the public sector is stepping up to the plate on its transport emissions but also help create a market that can drive further development of low carbon technology.

“Some Scottish companies are already leading the way in the development of low carbon vehicles. In these challenging economic times we need to play to our strengths and take advantage of the opportunities in developing the sustainable low carbon economy of the future.”
