The US’s Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) sets out policies to encourage the production and purchase of electric vehicles (EVs) in the US. If implemented in the UK, our analysis estimates equivalent policies would cost £64 billion between now and 2030.

  • Clean vehicle credit
  • Previously-owned clean vehicles
  • Qualified commercial clean vehicle
  • Advanced manufacturing production credit
