Diesel scrappage scheme in UK? The British Department for Transport considers a scrappage scheme for old and most polluting cars, the Telegraph has learnt. It would target areas with the highest air pollution first. Such a scheme would likely include a discount or cashback on low-emission cars in exchange of polluting vehicles being turned in. Talks with the Treasury have taken place and officials are currently drawing up plans.

200 charger for Iceland: There are thirteen EV charging stations on Europe’s most nordic island but this number shall grow to 200 over the next three years. 1.64m euro funding comes from the Icelandic government for 107 such charge spots. Additionally, Orkusalan utility is installing 80 chargers.

Green fleet: UK Carline added ten Toyota C-HR Hybrid to its fleet. The hybrids now form about 30 percent of the car pool. The move comes after the company saw demand for hybrid and electric vehicles increase last year and it expects this trend to continue.
