Air Quality Mobility Credits Analysis
Report commissioned by BVRLA the trade body for the vehicle rental and leasing sector
- The way that we are travelling is changing. Advancements in vehicle technology and mobile connectivity has created the conditions for the development of a suit of new mobility service offerings to consumers.
- Shared vehicle schemes can promote low emission vehicles, reduce the number of cars on the road, lower mileage, and complement other transport modes such as public transport. Therefore, the Government should consider supporting shared vehicle schemes, as part of their actions to address dangerous air pollution and NOx emissions.
- We model the impact of a 2-year scrappage scheme for euro 1-5 diesel which provides mobility credits (to be used for shared vehicle schemes and on public transport) rather than a typical upfront grant.
- Our analysis is indicative, but suggests that a mobility credits policy would be both more cost-effective than a scrappage scheme, and provide greater additionality through behavioural change and the promotion of cleaner, alternative modes of transport.
