In September 2017, as part of the Scottish Government’s Programme for Government, Nicola Sturgeon announced that all petrol and diesel vehicles would be phased out in Scotland by 2032.
Glasgow will become Scotland's first Low Emission Zone (LEZ), further driving the demand for ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEV). This LEZ is now in place with the first phase applying to buses and will culminate in 2022 when all vehicles will be subject to the restrictions.
Glasgow is key to Scotland’s air quality improvement success, and because Glasgow City Council (GCC), the Scottish Government and its partners are committed to unlocking the Region’s full economic potential and make it the low-carbon ‘growth engine’ for the area.
Glasgow City Council’s EV network facilitates in excess of 41,000 charges annually for over 2,500 distinct users. This is expected to rise 10-fold over the next five years. As demand on the network continues to rise, enforcement of spaces is critical for the user experience and crucial to maintaining user confidence specifically in the network and in EVs generally.
Glasgow City Council will be installing approximately 60 additional charge points throughout the city in 2019 and up to 70 in 2020.
