It turns out that the UK Department for Transport has only 1% of its fleet made up of zero-emission vehicles, making for a total of 134 hybrid vehicles and only 22 are pure electric vehicles, out of the 1,860 vehicle fleet. The vast majority of 1,326 are diesel, while another 43 are petrol.
Furthermore, hybrid vehicles are labeled ultra-low-emission vehicles despite the fact that hybrid vehicles have real-world consumption and CO2 emissions far from type-approval values. Not a great look considering the UK’s electrification targets. At least things are progressing on the private side.
