Green Fleet | Popularity of EVs and hybrids in Ireland increases

Tom Lusher has discussed with Green Fleet the increase in popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) in Ireland. He explained that the Irish government has started to pave the way for increased growth by putting several EV incentives in place.

If Ireland is to achieve its goal of 950,000 EVs on Irish roads by 2030, a comprehensive set of tax measures, and incentives such as free parking, use of bus lanes and reduced rate toll road fees, could be vital in creating the demand that they need to see.

Although the Irish government can increase the demand for EVs, there is competition globally for the limited number of EVs being manufactured by automotive manufacturers.
