UK: Just 534 sign up for electric car grant

T?he Plug-In Car Grant, a scheme offering £5,000 off the cost of ultra-low CO2 and electric cars, has got off to a slow start, attracting just over 500 people in the first three months of its availability.

Introduced in January, the government hoped the money-off deal would encourage more people to switch to low emissions or electric car alternatives, with the additional cost of purchase identified as one of the key reasons why EVs are not being considered by many.

However, figures revealed in a parliamentary answer given by junior transport minister Norman Baker suggest the scheme hasn’t taken off as expected.
