Addison Lee CEO warns Mayor of London ‘we must see significant investment’ if EV targets are to be met



Liam Griffin, CEO of Addison Lee, has called on the Mayor of London to address critical issues around electric vehicle adaptation that will help define the city’s road transport future ahead of his third term leading the capital.


Griffin’s remarks highlight the need for investment in electric vehicle charging infrastructure and incentives to promote the adoption of EVs. This investment represents a crucial step for a city aiming to become carbon-neutral in less than a decade.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has set the ambitious target of making London a net-zero city by 2030.


Beyond infrastructure, Griffin also highlights the importance of incentives to encourage EV adoption. Transitioning to electric vehicles is an expensive proposition for many Londoners. Incentives for vehicles that transport the public on a daily basis, such as grants or subsidies, can play a vital role in accelerating this shift.


Griffin urged the Mayor to work more closely with representatives across the transport system to find the right solutions that support a green, and accessible city.

Griffin said: “While this outcome marks a vote of confidence in City Hall - an acknowledgement of important milestones achieved over the last term - there is still much more that needs to be done if we are to create a truly efficient and sustainable city for Londoners. 

 

“If the Mayor is to get anywhere close to meeting his 2030 net zero target, over the next term we must see significant investment to bolster EV charging infrastructure in the capital, alongside strong incentives that encourage the widespread adoptions of EVs.  

 

“Setting the London transport network up for a successful, sustainable future is no mean feat. We invite the Mayor to work more closely with representatives across the transport system – such as ourselves - to find the right solutions that support a green, accessible city for all.”
