“The Times has reported that the UK government is planning a road tax to cover EV shortfall. With many EVs being exempt from vehicle excise duty (VED) — what many call ‘road tax’ — the government is rumoured to be looking for a way to make up that shortfall. Bringing the ban on petrol and diesel cars forward to 2030 is going to accelerate the use of vehicles that don’t pay any VED, which could lead to a £40billion shortfall for the government.”
