Electric Cars: What They Really Mean For You | Preview (BBC One)

Cars are an essential part of life for many of us. But new petrol and diesel cars will be banned from sale in 2030 to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Electric cars are selling fast, but are not without controversy.

Justin Rowlatt, the BBC’s climate editor, explores if the UK is on track to hit the government’s targets to stop emitting greenhouse gases by 2050.

Presenter Michelle Ackerley investigates the frustrations people face trying to charge their electric cars. She explores the difficulties in building the UK’s charging infrastructure and why it’s not happening fast enough.

Environmental scientist Dr Tara Shine questions the cost of electric cars and meets battery experts to understand the global forces that will affect prices for decades to come.

Electric Cars: What They Really Mean For You airs Tuesday at 8pm on BBC One.
