Did you know you can get a discount on your new electric vehicle?

The government has given dealerships and manufacturers a grant which allows a maximum of £3,000 to be taken off the price of a new electric or hybrid vehicle.

Here’s everything you need to know about the government grant:

How much can I get from the grant?

You can receive up to £3,000 from the government grant.

The grant will pay for 35% of the vehicle’s price, with a maximum allowance of £3,000.

Do I need to apply for the grant?

No.

The beauty of the grant is that you don’t have to do a single thing!

The dealership will do it all for you. Just read the terms and conditions to double-check if the grant amount has already been taken off the advertising price, or if the grant is still to be discounted.

What vehicles are eligible?

- Cars

- Vans

- Motorcycles

- Mopeds

- Taxis

- Large Vans and Trucks

How do I know if my electric car is eligible?

Cars that can travel at least 70 miles on zero emissions and have a CO2 level lower than 50g/km are included in the government grant.

This includes:

- E-Golf

- Kia e-Niro

- Honda e

What if my vehicle doesn’t fit the criteria?

Don’t worry.

Even if your vehicle doesn’t match the criteria of being able to travel 70 miles on zero emissions and have a CO2 level lower than 50g/km, you can still get up to £500 (including VAT) off the cost of installing a home charger.

To qualify for this, your vehicle must have CO2 emissions lower than 50 to 75g/km and the ability to travel at least 10-20 miles on just the electric battery.
