Express | Car tax changes branded a success as updates lead to ‘resilient demand’ for these models

CAR TAX changes introduced in March 2020 have had a positive effect on electric car sales as uptake has soared.

A recent survey of more than 500 businesses across the UK found that 30 percent were already using electric vehicles in their fleets.

A further 46 percent said they had plans to make the transition while 16 percent said they have had initial discussions. 

Experts at Cornwall Insight said the car tax changes provided an “incentive for businesses” to offer electric vehicles to staff. 

Katie Hickford, our Analyst, also revealed that changes to the plug-in grant had also had an impact on a slight rise in sales.
