In 2022, there were 267,203 BEVs registered in the UK (an increase of 40.1% compared to 2021), comprising 16.6% of total car registration and surpassing diesel for the first time to become the second most popular powertrain after petrol.

While more and more of us are buying electric cars due to many many benefits they offer, two thirds (66.7%) of all these registrations and 74.7% of the volume gain in 2022 were from fleets and business buyers.(figures from the SMMT)

In November 2020, the UK government has announced in the ZEV Mandate that it will end the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030, and plug-in hybrids by 2035, meanting that by that point it will only be possible to buy new cars that have zero tailpipe emissions.

By giving EV drivers a voice, EVA England is here to ensure that there are policies and infrastructure in place to support this transition and encourage more people to go electric.

When EVA England refers to ‘Electric Vehicles’ this means cars and vans (up to 3.5 tonnes) that have an electric motor powered by a battery or that can be plugged in:

  • Pure or battery electric vehicles (BEVs)
  • Extended-range electric vehicles (E-REVs)
