Automotive manufacturers across the globe are looking to move towards more sustainable practices, with electric vehicles becoming the way forward. But are manufacturers doing enough to build out the shift to electric?

We’ll discover when it’s best to opt for FCEV or BEV, why some manufacturers are currently being slow on the uptake, and what governments and the industry as a whole can do to ensure their futures are more sustainable.
