The government has set out a series of clean air zones that are based in five separate cities in England (Birmingham, Derby, Leeds, Nottingham and Southampton). The clean air zones are scheduled to be introduced by 2020 and is likely to improve the people's quality of life. 40,000 people die a year in the UK from air pollution.
The clean air zones will give electric vehicles additional benefits as they do on the roads today and will impose greater restrictions on older more polluting commercial vehicles.
The take-up of electric vehicles is certainly beginning to gain momentum. In the period from April to June 2014 there were 2,738 electric vehicles registered. 250% less than the 9,657 electric vehicles registered from April to June 2016.
