Of course. In my recent Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) Delivery Plan, I restated my commitment to make London the electric vehicle capital of Europe.  Ensuring that London has reliable and easy-to-use charging and refuelling infrastructure to support the uptake of low and ultra low emission vehicles is a key element to ensure success.  The plan provides strategic direction to ensure that London has the charging and refuelling infrastructure it needs to support the diverse needs of its different ULEV owners and users.
