To ask Her Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the likely increase in electric vehicles on UK roads between (1) 2020 and 2025, and (2) 2025 and 2030.

Recent years have seen significant year on year rises in UK registrations of electric vehicles. The Government expects this trend to continue, driven by our comprehensive, world-leading support package for the transition to zero emission vehicles.

Exact numbers will depend on a wide range of factors, which are influenced by the markets for vehicles and chargepoint infrastructure, as well as by Government support. As the Prime Minister announced on 4 February, we intend to consult on bringing forward ending the sale of new petrol, diesel and hybrid cars and vans from 2040 to 2035, or earlier if a faster transition appears feasible.
