UK SMEs lukewarm about electric future

UK SMEs lukewarm about electric future
UK SMEs remain to be convinced that electric vehicles (EVs) are the future of motorised transport in the UK, despite many being convinced by their environmental benefits, according to the latest data from Close Brothers Asset Finance. The survey of 900 firms conducted in April 2019 shows that while 41% think EVs will becoming ubiquitous over time, for 36% it’s ‘too early to tell’ and for the remaining 23% it’s a definite ‘no’.

Imminent legislation targets safety for pedestrians around EVs

Imminent legislation targets safety for pedestrians around EVs
From 1st July, all new private and commercial electric and hybrid vehicles with four or more wheels must have an Acoustic Vehicle Alert System (AVAS) fitted. The EU ‘Regulation on the Sound Level of Motor Vehicle’ (EU 540/2014) in combination with EU Requirement ECE R138, will ensure such vehicles are more easily heard by pedestrians, cyclists and vulnerable groups and follows more than a decade’s worth of campaigning by groups such as the European Blind Union.
