UK: Government confirms plug-in car grant until 2015

The Government has confirmed that its £5000 grant for plug-in hybrid cars is secure until 2015.

The grant, which offers a 25% discount up to a maximum of £5000, previously had a ring-fenced amount of funding to determine its active life, rather than a set timeline.

Transport ministers also announced that a similar discount will soon apply to vans.

A new plug-in van grant has been created offering buyers a discount of 20% up to a maximum of £8000. Manufacturers have until 31 January to register eligible vehicles for the scheme, after which the Government will carry out an assessment of available vans. The scheme is expected to go live within two months.

Vans must emit less than 75g/km CO2, be capable of at least 60 miles between charges (10 miles in electric mode for hybrids), have a top speed of at least 50mph for safety purposes and meet European Type Approval standards to qualify for the grant
