answer text <p>Vehicle manufacture is a global industry and consequently, there is no agreed approach that can be used to inform consumers of the comparative carbon footprint of the production of different vehicles. The Government does not currently have any plans to inform consumers about the comparative carbon footprint generated by different electric vehicles in their production. We expect the transition to zero emission motoring to be industry-led, supported by measures set out in our Road to Zero strategy.</p><p> </p><p>In 2018, the Department for Transport developed the Transport Energy Model. This was published alongside the Road to Zero strategy to provide a clear assessment of the relative environmental impacts of different road vehicle technologies and fuels. The Model showed that UK battery electric vehicles have substantially lower greenhouse gas emissions than conventional vehicles, even when accounting for the energy mix of the electricity to charge the battery, as well as the electricity used for battery production.</p><p> </p><p>Electric vehicle emission values are highly dependent on the electricity mix of the country in which the vehicle is charged, and the country in which the vehicle, battery, and other parts are manufactured. Emission values will also vary according to model type, car size, and miles driven. To obtain full environmental benefits, electric vehicles and their batteries need to be manufactured using electricity from carbon-free sources.</p>

answer text <p>BEIS Ministers regularly engage with their counterparts in other departments on clean growth matters including ultra low and zero emission vehicle policy. We set out in our Road to Zero strategy published last year our mission to put the UK at the forefront of the design and manufacturing of zero emission vehicles and for all new cars and vans to be effectively zero emission by 2040.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s has also committed £1 billion with industry to 2023 through the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC), to research, develop and commercialise the next generation of low carbon technologies and £274 million committed by Government to the Faraday Battery Challenge to support the design, development and manufacture of electric batteries.</p><p> </p><p>Our Future of Mobility 2040 mission is ambitious but achievable and we believe it is a key part of the answer to our long term transport air quality and greenhouse gas issues. It puts us at the forefront of the global transition to zero emission vehicles. We have consulted extensively with stakeholders across numerous sectors including environmental groups, the automotive industry and other experts, and believe we have identified the right balance between our environmental ambitions and deliverability, giving consumers and industry time to transition.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to supporting the transition to zero emission vehicles, which can cut carbon, reduce air pollution and help us grow the economy as part of our Industrial Strategy.</p>

answer text <p>Our mission is to put the UK at the forefront of the design and manufacturing of zero emission vehicles, and for all new cars and vans to be effectively zero emission by 2040. The Road to Zero Strategy sets out a clear pathway to zero emissions, to give clarity and certainty to both industry and motorists. By 2030 we want at least half of new cars sold, and as many as 70%, to be ultra low emission, alongside up to 40% of new vans. To achieve this, we are investing nearly £1.5bn‎ between April 2015 and March 2021, with grants available for plug in cars, vans, lorries, buses, taxis and motorcycles, and schemes to support charge point infrastructure at homes and workplaces and on residential streets.</p><p> </p><p>In July 2017, Defra published the UK Plan for Tackling Roadside Nitrogen Dioxide Concentrations (NO2), setting out how we will achieve compliance in the shortest possible time, supported by a £3.5 billion investment into air quality and cleaner transport.</p><p> </p><p>Any assessment made on the effect of the introduction of E10 on the level of air pollution is a matter for the Department for Transport.</p>
