Electric car prices could “rise” before petrol and diesel cars are banned in 2030

Experts at said that without “manufacturer support” costs would likely “increase”. The comments come after a new report by Green Group Transport & Environment shows that UK manufacturing will not keep up with the rest of Europe.

That means families will have to switch to electric cars if they want to buy a brand new model.

But prices are often outside of many people’s budgets, with 81 percent saying electric vehicles are too expensive, according to a new AA study.

He said, “Many of us are on board to become more environmentally conscious.

In fact, we found that more than half (56 percent) of motorists would consider buying an electric vehicle as their next car.

“If we are to get the ban on new gasoline and diesel cars by 2030, we need support from manufacturers and the government alike, as lower supply from manufacturers could lead to the cost of electric vehicles in the UK rising.

“As the ban is fast approaching, it can be confusing to know when is the best time to switch.

“Especially when you consider high prices and news of the change in UK supply adding to the fear.”

Transport & Environment has cited a “chronic lack of future investment” in UK factories as the main factor behind the planned decline.

The analysis uses information based on the automobile manufacturers’ own products provided by the data company IHS.

According to the data, total car production in the UK will be around 1 million vehicles each year, a quarter lower than pre-pandemic rates.

By 2030, the UK will have the lowest per capita production of battery electric cars in major auto manufacturing areas.
