Working with Direct Line and PACTS, plus the Westminster Commission for Road Air Quality and ZapMap, we have today published an interactive web application
allowing everyone to view data on air quality, electric vehicles, and public charging points in a single place.
Concerns about air quality and its impacts on public health have become a major concern of the public, professionals and politicians. In parallel, concern about climate change has become acute. Emissions from transport are major contributors to both environmental problems. In order to improve air quality and to meet climate change commitments, the Government is ending production of petrol and diesel cars by 2030 and promoting electric vehicles (EVs).

which raises a number of issues relating to electic vehicle costs and charging infrastrucutre,
