The government wants to establish low emission light commercial vehicles as an alternative to diesel-powered vans. This will help to improve air quality in our towns and cities and meet our legal obligations under the Climate Change Act and air quality regulations.
The proposals set out in this consultation would allow category B (car) licence holders to drive a slightly heavier vehicle, if it is powered by a low emission technology, by offsetting the additional weight of the powertrain.
This will help compensate for lost payload capacity due to the added weight and size of alternative fuel technologies.
