If there is one positive from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it is, that households across the UK and most parts of the globe, have witnessed a significant improvement in air quality. The restrictions, lockdowns and the subsequent reduction in traffic on our roads, has resulted in lower tailpipe emissions. Individuals and households are determined to safeguard their air quality, hence the recent significant rise in the adoption of plug-in electric cars in the UK, to include the all-electric Tesla Model 3, the all-electric Nissan Leaf and the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE.

2020 has been an unprecedented year for the UK automotive sector, with significant declines in the sales and market share of tailpipe emission, petrol and diesel vehicles. However, zero-tailpipe emission electric vehicles (EV) has driven the other way i.e. an astounding increase of 168% in the SMMT new car registrations to date (October 2020).
