Tomorrow's Low Carbon Cars. Driving innovation and long term investment in low carbon cars

This web-based report examines the contribution that low carbon cars could make to the UK's Climate Change commitments and assesses how fuel duty incentives could be better designed to help distinguish and reward lower carbon forms of fuels. Please click on the title for details.

This report assesses how fuel duty incentives could be better designed to help distinguish and reward lower carbon forms of fuels and makes recommendations about future support for road gas fuels. It also examines how Government can help to encourage longer term investment and innovation in the hydrogen and fuel cell cars of the future and makes recommendations about how the UK's Fuel Cell Vision should be taken forward.

Tomorrow's Low Carbon Cars is part of ippr's Motoring Towards Sustainability programme which is examining the role of the car in progressive and environmentally sustainable transport policy. Later in the year, ippr will be publishing further policy reports on road transport and climate change as well as road user charging.
