Government to supercharge the future of EV driving with £12m funding

The funding will support research projects which focus on the development of greener vehicles and the improvement of EV charging technology

The UK Government has announced £12 million of new funding to support electric vehicle (EV) research projects.

The funding, which underpins the government's commitment to driving down emissions and encouraging more UK drivers to make the switch to EVs, will benefit projects that will integrate the most promising electric transport technologies.

As a result of this scheme, researchers suggest the UK could soon see cars of the future benefitting from a six-minute battery charge.
