With reductions in air pollution, managing climate change and improving fuel security becoming more urgent, how is government policy meeting these priorities and what are vehicle manufacturers doing to design vehicles that help to achieve the same goals? How do we plan for the future in a society which has been so reliant on the internal combustion engine car? Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport Jesse Norman, Mike Hawes, CEO of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, Fiona Howarth is the CEO of Octopus Electric Vehicles and Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO of Hyundai UK. Chaired by TV presenter, author and electric vehicle expert Robert Llewellyn.
