The government will spend more than £600 million between 2015-16 and 2020-21 to support the uptake and manufacturing of ultra low emission vehicles in the UK which will keep the UK on track to meet our ambitious target that nearly all cars and vans will be zero emission by 2050.</p> more like this

Issues relating to vehicle emissions are considered in the context of the UK Government’s plans for air quality.
