To reach this goal, the politicians proposed increasing Britain’s car tax by £2000 or about $4000 US Dollars for larger vehicles like SUVs and lower emission vehicles would be taxed with less or no tax. The plan would also include talks with car manufacturers in providing vehicles using alternative technologies such as electric batteries.
