The air quality and low carbon agendas are recurring themes in transport news and remain a high priority for the government, as has been made clear in recent meetings with Ministers.
We have already seen the government’s strategy for the UK and over the next few months, we are expecting a more focused plan for the road transport sector, in particular for HGVs.
At this week’s Freight in the City event, I had the opportunity to see a whole range of new vehicles and technology, demonstrating the automotive sectors adaption to these changing market conditions.
From pure EVs, Hybrids and fuel cells to complete new vehicles, it shows how much the industry has changed over the past few years. However, the journey has just begun – many of these products have yet to hit the mainstream and other new technologies may yet emerge. The time ahead is uncertain but exciting for sure.
