Yesterday the Government announced a long-term extension to the Plug-in Car Grant which will continue until at least the end of March 2018.
The new grant reflects the growing popularity of electric vehicles with consumers and as business fleets. Sales have doubled over the past year, and there are now 29 ULEVs on the market, produced by a range of manufacturers. The government has committed to make nearly all cars and vans in the UK zero emission by 2050, and aim to encourage and support the development, manufacture and uptake of electric vehicles.
Poppy Welch, head of our Go Ultra Low campaign team, believes that the Plug-in Car Grant is “an excellent purchase incentive for motorists embracing this new, green technology. When you consider the ‘in-life’ costs savings associated with plug-in car ownership – such as lower tax, fuel and maintenance – the electric vehicle proposition is extremely attractive”.
