Government and electric cars:

The Department for Transport said it will be considering the proposal to install public charge points at popular destinations and painting green parking spaces to show they are reserved for EVs - following the introduction of green number plates for battery cars this autumn. The DfT has pledged £12million to boost research and development of EV technologies.

Highways England has also pumped £9.3million to a scheme that will allow businesses to try electric cars and vans for two months for free before deciding to invest in them.
