Together with the wider support the government provides, the company car tax system aims to encourage the uptake and manufacture of ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) by providing an incentive for motorists to choose zero-emission and other low CO2 emitting models.

In 2017, sales of ULEVs were 1.8% of all new cars, and the UK was the second largest market for ULEVs in the EU.
