Callfor increased funding forvehicle­s


Following the UK Government’s announceme­nt of incentives to boost production of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, a survey has shown drivers want manufactur­ers to dramatical­ly increase investment in the technology.

Sixty-three per cent of respondent­s to the Venson Automotive Solutions survey believe vehicle manufactur­ers should invest as much time and money in bringing hydrogen cars to UK roads, as they are with electric vehicles.

Alison Bell, marketing director for Venson Automotive Solutions, said: “We all want to do what we can to reduce our emissions but not many of us can afford to be led entirely by the emissions data.

“The range of electric vehicles has grown rapidly, and with the right investment and innovation, hydrogen vehicles should soon follow.”
