Increasing electric vehicles in the capital

5 July 2011: Next week, the London Assembly Environment Committee will look at the Mayor’s plans to develop an electric vehicle network in the capital and its potential environmental benefits. The Mayor’s original Electric Vehicle Delivery Plan committed to delivering 100,000 electric vehicles in London as soon as possible; 25,000 charge points by 2015 and 1,000 electric vehicles in the Greater London Authority fleet by 2015. Revisions to the plans now include delivering at least 1,300 charging points by 2013. Yet, there are only 17,000 hybrid and all-electric vehicles being used in Greater London at the moment.
Next week’s meeting will take place on Tuesday, 12 July from 10am in the Chamber at City Hall (The Queen’s Walk, London SE1). Media and members of the public are invited to attend.  The meeting can also be viewed via webcast.
