Substantial increase in ULEV take-up

Major year on year increase in the number of ultra low emissions vehicles registered in the UK.

Transport minister Andrew Jones has welcomed the substantial increase in the number of new ultra low emission vehicles registered in the United Kingdom.

A total of 9,046 ultra low emission vehicles were registered in the first quarter of 2015 – a rise of 366% from the same period in 2014.

Transport Minister Andrew Jones said, ‘I am delighted to see such a huge rise in the number of people buying ultra low emission vehicles. The Go Ultra Low campaign is making low emission vehicles an increasingly popular choice and the government is investing £500 million over the next 5 years in making them more accessible to families and businesses across the country.

‘It’s a great example of Britain leading the way in developing sustainable transport options that are affordable for everyone.’
