British drivers could in future save up to GBP 1,000 on fuel annually, experts say - provided that the necessary infrastructure for recharging electric vehicles is built in the country.

Additionally, by 2030 carbon emissions into the atmosphere could be reduced by 47%, which, in turn, would result in a decrease in the number of respiratory diseases, the treatment of which currently requires up to GBP 1 billion in budget spending per year.
