Plug in car and van grants are available to businesses.  You can get a grant towards the cost of a new electric (plug-in) car or van, as long as it meets certain conditions.

The grant covers:

35% of the cost of a car, up to a maximum of either £2,500 or £4,500 depending on the model
20% of the cost of a van, up to a maximum of £8,000

The ‘cost’ is the full purchase price you pay for the basic vehicle – including number plates, vehicle excise duty and VAT. It doesn’t include delivery charges, the first registration fee or any optional extras.

You can’t get a grant for second-hand vehicles, or category 2 or 3 vehicles with a recommended retail price of £60,000 and over.

The amount of your grant will be automatically deducted from the price of your car or van when you buy it. The dealership will complete the paperwork, so there are no application forms for you to fill in.
