The UK is set to be the first country to introduce a fully electric car market with electric car manufacturers having been ordered to put their products on sale by the government.
The new policy means that all car makers must have a fully functional electric vehicle on sale, which is an “unprecedented” move by the UK government, and comes as the government pushes for electric cars to become more mainstream.
Electric cars are more efficient, cleaner, safer, quieter and cheaper, said the government, which also announced plans to set up a £2bn scheme to buy 100,000 electric vehicles a year by 2020.
Electric car owners are already eligible for a subsidy of up to £100 per year and the government said that it would “continue to support” electric car owners in their quest for an electric car.
It comes as Tesla announced that it is launching a new Model 3 electric vehicle in 2021, which will be a more expensive alternative to the Model S, and the electric car maker is planning to make its first mass production vehicles in 2019.
The government has also set up the “Model 3s UK” group, which aims to support electric car development.
Tesla has also launched a “Model 2 UK” project, which has been launched by a number of electric car makers to support Model 3 development.
The UK’s electric car industry is growing at a rapid rate, with a total of 5,500 electric cars in operation in 2017, according to the government’s figures, with another 2,300 cars expected to be sold in 2021.
The first 100,600 vehicles will be produced in 2019, with the first 100 in 2021 and 200 by 2023.
The new government policy means the government has ordered car companies to offer their products for sale by 2026, and has also created a new industry body, the Model 3 UK, to support the electric vehicle market.
“The Government is committed to ensuring that electric car technology is affordable, accessible, reliable and affordable for the many people who already drive electric cars,” said Transport Secretary Anthony Hughes.
“The Government will continue to support manufacturers and suppliers to ensure that electric cars become more widely available.”
Electric car companies are being given an incentive to sell their products in a government-funded scheme, which means the UK will see an increase in the number of sales over the next three years.
As the government continues to work on the plan, the government is also working with the car manufacturers on a new technology for charging electric cars.
The electric car is also being developed as a new generation of fuel cell vehicles, which are capable of producing a range of up from 20 miles (32km) on a single charge.
The technology is expected to replace conventional gasoline-electric vehicles, and will allow electric cars that have been designed to have higher performance and lower emissions to compete with their petrol-electric counterparts.
In 2020, the UK plans to make the largest investments in electric cars ever, with more than £10bn spent on electric cars, with around 10,000 vehicles currently in operation.
The Department for Transport has also announced that the government will be investing in a £1bn electric vehicle development programme to help plug the UK’s infrastructure gap.
