UK may consider electric vehicle subsidy to increase cycling
Roads minister Jesse Norman says government could push councils to do more to fight pollution and inactive living
The UK government could potentially consider providing subsidies for electric bicycles and electric cars as part of a concerted policy effort to get more people cycling, the roads minister, Jesse Norman, has said.
With the UK facing health crises from pollution and inactive living, other plans could include using electric cargo bikes to deliver packages from internet retailers rather than vans, Norman told the Guardian.
