Since the introduction of the Plug-in Car grant in January 2011 up and until 1st March 2016 the UK government have been contributing £5,000 towards the cost/purchase of eligible Ultra Low Emissions Vehicles (ULEVs).
As all good things unfortunately come to an end this particular scheme like most others are capped and the number of grants usually come to an end before the majority of the public realise or even get the chance to enquire.
The electric plug-in car grant has promoted the electric car industry to some degree and we are now seeing more and more year on year increase number of electric cars on the UK roads.
These stats in our opinion mean that not only more UK drivers are taking the advantage of this grant but we are more aware and concerned about the environment and making an effort to go green.
The UK government website have announced the following changes to the Plug-in Car grant:
NOTE: An important condition to note is that cost of the car does not include delivery, first registration fee and any optional extras.
You can visit our business lease cars deals page where you can use the keyword search feature on “Plugin Electric” to go through a whole list of car models but please make sure they have CO² emissions below 75g/km to be eligible for the grant. You can alternatively choose from the listed car choices below that we know that could pre-qualify.
Toyota Prius Hatchback 1.8 VVTi Active 5dr CVT Auto starting from £215 + VAT
Mitsubishi Outlander 4x4 Estate GX3h starting from £286 +VAT
BMW 3 Series Saloon 330e starting from £329 + VAT
BMW 2 Series Active Tourer 225xe starting from £478 + VAT
Mercedes-Benz S Class Saloon S500e starting from £725 + VAT
Unfortunately for some, the most desired premium electric cars costing over the maximum threshold of £60,000 although falling into category 2 and 3 are not eligible so before you get carried away we have listed these for your reference below:
BMW i8 (category 2)
Mercedes-Benz S500 Hybrid (category 3)
