UK Aims to Become World Leader in EVs

  The UK is way behind several other countries in the world (USA and Japan for sure) when its comes to EV adoption, but a plan is now in place to get the UK back in the running for world leader in EVs.

  Dubbed the Go Ultra Low Campaign, the UK——with backing from Nissan, BMW and Toyota (just to name a few of the automakers on board)——is looking to secure its ”position as a global leader in both the production and adoption of these vehicles,” according to Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg.

  Clegg says EVs are ”one of the most promising of our green industries.”

  As part of the Go Ultra Low campaign, the UK will invest $14.8 million to build out the public charging infrastructure. Under that plan, some 140 DC quick chargers will be installed.

  The UK is currently home to approximately 6,000 public chargers, which ain’t shabby at all. Chargers don’t seem to be the problem though. UK buyers seem unwilling to go electric, despite the thousands of public chargers in the ground.

  British Transport Minister Robert Goodwill says the Go Ultra Low Campain is aimed at ”opening people’s eyes” to EVs. That requires more than just chargers, so it’ll be interesting to see what the UK does to open more eyes to the benefits of EVs.
