REVEALED: Causeway Coast and Glens 6th WORST IN UK for adopting green transport

1 Mins read

Causeway Coast and Glens is the 6th worst town in the UK for adopting green transport, according to the latest DVLA data.

Fleet insurance experts Fleetcover requested data from the DVLA to find out which towns had the highest percentage of electric/hybrid vehicles, and which ones are the slowest off the starting line.

It follows the government recently announcing that no new vans or cars wholly powered by petrol or diesel can be sold in the UK from 2030 onwards.

The results from the 386 towns in this spreadsheet showed huge disparities across the UK, with the City of London having 14.5% of all its vehicles in the electric/hybrid category, but Mid Ulster, in Northern Ireland, scored just 0.74%.

The top 10 are:

1. City of London (14.05%)
2. Portsmouth, Hampshire (11.85%)
3. Westminster, London (11.71%)
4. Tower Hamlets, London (11.71%)
5. Watford, Hertfordshire (11.65%)
6. Hammersmith and Fulham, London (10.52%)
7. Stockport, Greater Manchester (10.48%)
8. Camden, London (9.94%)
9. Slough, Berkshire (9.92%)
10. Peterborough, Cambridgeshire (9.77%)

The bottom 10 are:

1. Mid Ulster, Northern Ireland (0.74%) Northern Ireland – the newsletter
2. Blaenau Gwent, Wales (0.79%)
3. Fermanagh and Omagh, Northern Ireland (0.83%)
4. Merthyr Tydfil, Wales (0.84%)
5. Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, Scotland (0.86%)
6. Causeway Coast and Glens, Northern Ireland (0.91%)
7. Newry, Mourne and Down, Northern Ireland (1.02%)
8. Derry City and Strabane, Northern Ireland (1.03%)
9. Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria (1.07%)
10. Darlington, Durham (1.10%)
