Government grants and incentives deliver cost-savings for businesses
Your business can take advantage of a number of grants and incentives to grow your electric vehicle fleet and save thousands of pounds
Since 2011 the UK Government has provided a suite of financial incentives for private motorists, fleets and businesses, to make the switch to plug-in vehicles.
The plug-in car grant offers up to £4,500 off the ‘on the road’ purchase price of eligible new pure electric cars; £2,500 off eligible new plug-in hybrids that cost £60,000 or less; and up to £8,000 off the price of an eligible new van. Since the grant began in 2011 more than 120,000 new electric vans and cars have hit the UK’s roads.
Since the introduction of Government’s Plug-in Car Grant in 2011, registrations of electric cars have grown dramatically from 1,089, to 2016’s volume of 36,673 – contributing to a national total that now exceeds 120,000 plug-in cars.
This rapid rise is fuelled by greater consumer awareness, the increasing number of plug-in cars now available – currently 35 models and growing, plus a range of incentives from Government and local authorities.
What’s more, fleets and businesses are leading the charge for plug-in cars and vans – more than 70% of EV registrations are made to UK businesses, highlighting the important role that companies play in growing the low-emission vehicle market.
