Industry bodies questioned on electric vehicles

13 March 2018

The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee questions Unite the Union and the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) as part of the Committee's inquiry into electric vehicles.

Challenges and opportunities

The session will focus on the challenges and opportunities of the transition to electric vehicles for the UK automotive industry.  It will explore how the network of businesses along the entire supply chain can be supported, from production to end-of-life treatment.

Members are likely to ask about the effectiveness of existing policies to support electric vehicle manufacturing and what more can be done to grow UK production.

The Electric Vehicles: Developing the market and infrastructure inquiry is exploring the role of electric vehicles in the transition to a low carbon economy. 

It is investigating the actions needed to support the development of the electric vehicle market, the challenges that electric vehicles represent for the electricity grid, and industrial opportunities for the automotive sector.
