What’s driving electric car sales around the world?
The Paris Climate Agreement sets out an action plan to put the world on track to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2°C. An important part of this plan is to encourage the sale of electric vehicles over fossil fuel-powered vehicles. However, with a basic hatchback coming in at around £20,000 (£3,000 more than the average petrol-powered version), plus battery rental, governments are relying on financial incentives to encourage sales. We’ve been doing some digging to find out how government incentives across Europe have been promoting EV sales, and who is having the most success!
