Less polluting vehicles Southampton

At present vehicles in the UK are predominantly petrol or diesel powered, producing 331,000 tons of NOx pollutants nationwide (DEFRA, 2016).

Clean vehicle and fuel technologies provide us with an affordable, available means of reducing transportation-related air pollution and climate change emissions. These include fuel-efficient vehicles that use less oil; cleaner fuels that produce fewer emissions; and electric cars and trucks that can entirely remove exhaust emissions.

Plug–in electric vehicles are run entirely on power from the National Grid or other electric suppliers. Whilst they are not the complete solution for removing harmful emissions, they do produce much lower levels of pollution.

Electric charging points

Southampton City Council are working with Hampshire County Council to procure a supplier who will set up a network of charging points throughout the city. These are expected to be in place in early 2018, when we will be able to share information about where they are located and how to use them.
