New funding for electric vehicles in London

UNITED KINGDOM

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and Transport for London have announced £1.4 million in funding for six innovative ‘Neighbourhoods of the Future’, that will combine innovative green technology and other initiatives to tackle London’s air quality at a local level.

The funding will be matched by £1.1 million from the London boroughs involved and Heathrow airport, to help break down the barriers preventing people from buying ultra-low emission vehicles and ease the transition for communities wanting to move to greener lifestyles.

“We are determined to drive the take-up of low emission vehicles to improve London air quality and boost quality of life,” said John Hayes, Minister of State at the Department for Transport.

“We are investing nearly £600 million to encourage people to switch to greener vehicles, including £13 million to encourage Londoners to go electric. The ‘Neighbourhoods of the Future’ scheme will further help cut harmful emissions in the capital.”
