Nissan And Jaguar Land Rover Are Paying The Price Of Backing Diesel

Politicians and unions are blaming Brexit for production cuts at Nissan and Jaguar Land Rover, but this problem has been on the cards for some time, due to our increasing reliance on diesel power.

The technology is now there for more electric cars and it is criminal that the Government hasn’t done enough to encourage their use.

  • We need more ultra-low emission zones, as London is introducing.
  • All parking spaces and garages on new housing must have charging points.
  • All city buses should be low emission.
  • All taxis and private hire vehicles should be low emission.
  • We need better connected railways with a lot more stations and some new lines.

So what have the politicians been doing in the last few years. Spending time arguing about the irrelevance of Brexit.

Talk about fiddling, while Rome burned!

  1. Nissan Leaf 50k produced in Sunderland pa. Subsidies from the UK government (sorry us) to kick start adoption. 200k electric cars plus 20k public charge points. Maybe not the best in Europe but certainly in top quartile
