Biggest barrier to corporate EV adoption ‘is lack of supply’

That’s according to a new report from the Climate Group, which stresses car manufacturers must take action and ‘seize the market opportunities’ available so that supply can match demand

For businesses, the biggest barrier to electric vehicle (EV) adoption is a lack of vehicle supply.

That's according to a new report from the Climate Group, which focuses on the progress of its EV100 initiative - it stresses as more businesses join up and signal their demand for clean cars, car manufacturers must take action and "seize the market opportunities" available so that supply can match demand - it warns if they do not do this, carmakers will get left behind and will likely be hit by harsher regulations.

The report highlights the proportion of members citing a lack of available vehicles as the main barrier to fleet electrification has shot up from 44% in 2018 to 79% in 2019.
