The award-winning motoring broadcaster and transport campaigner Quentin Willson has officially launched a new Electric Vehicle and charging campaign which will lobby the government for fair charging, infrastructure and promote a wider understanding of electric cars.
Speaking exclusively to the website Transport + Energy, the former Top Gear presenter laid out his reasons for launching the FairCharge campaign.
He said: “Having campaigned hard for 10 years for Fair Fuel UK and seeing how effective it could be as a lobbying campaign, priorities and landscapes change. We’ve now got the opportunity to look at electric technology in a different way. We know it works. We need to drive electrification forward otherwise we’ll see the same situation as we have with petrol and diesel where the electricity market is controlled by outside actors and pricing becomes a wild west dominated by foreign cartels. We need market stability and energy security.”
Having made the decision to walk away from Fair Fuel UK last year he says he is now fully focused on lobbying the government on behalf of EV drivers.
