BACKGROUND AND FURTHER INFORMATION
Investment in R&D is key to the government’s mission of putting the UK at the forefront of the design, manufacture and use of ZEVs. These technologies can help deliver the transport decarbonisation goals and anchor economic activity across the UK.
The Government is going further and faster to decarbonise transport by phasing out the sale of new
diesel cars and vans by 2030, and, from 2035, all new cars and vans must be zero emissions at the tailpipe
Addressing these challenges through innovation, will support delivery of the UK’s ambitious phase out dates and net zero objectives. This list of examples is not intended to be exhaustive.
Challenge 1 –Improve ZEV range capability
- electric powertrains that deliver higher vehicle range and zero emission capability
highly disruptive zero emission technologies that significantly increase the efficiency of the vehicle powertrain or auxiliary systems
hydrogen technologies that focus on fuel cell development or the use of
hydrogen for the production of
advanced power electronics, machines and drives that support higher vehicle range
lightweight technologies that significantly reduced weight and hence increase vehicle range
Challenge 2 - Increase adoption of small commercial ZEVs
- fleet solutions, including service and home delivery, that improve operational performance or total cost of ownership
zero emission pick-up trucks and attributable on vehicle technology
Challenge 3 - Support transition to zero emission for special use vehicles
- ZEV technologies specific for blue light vehicles, pickup recovery and low-loaders, refuse collection
Challenge 4 – Improve ZEV user experience
- technologies which address mobility challenges faced by users with specific accessibility requirements such as disabled drivers
innovation addressing road-side recovery for ZEVs such as EV towing
innovation which will support second-hand ZEV uptake such as vehicle health monitoring technologies
innovative solutions for breaker systems and motors which improve towing of loads e.g. in caravans
caravan technologies that help increases the range or capability of ZEVs
zero emission technologies for motorhomes
all-terrain ZEV solutions which deliver parity with existing combustion vehicles
Challenge 5 –Improve sustainability of ZEVs
Solutions that support investment in a battery recycling facility
