Tailpipe dreams - what is a sustainable vehicle?

The potential impact of future regulation on low emission vehicles

‘To plagiarise and adapt Benjamin Franklin’s well-known saying, there are three certainties in life; death, taxes and climate change. Regulations and taxation can drive the innovation which can obtain sustainable automotive. They can give us long-term benefits, not short-term pain’. – Andy Eastlake
