Officers are drafting a response which will be sent shortly.

Written response received on 1 July 2013.

The DVLA is the data owner for registered keeper information. However, from the data that is available to TfL, it has been determined that some 2,500 pure electric vehicles and some 32,500 hybrid vehicles are registered in Greater London.

I am pleased that London already has the highest proportion of electric and hybrid vehicles in the UK with 14 per cent of EVs and 23 per cent of all hybrids in the UK registered in London.
