Business owners will be able to receive 20 per cent, up to £8,000, off the cost of a “plugin” (electric) van.
The Government has extended its Plug-In Car Grant scheme to include vans in a bid to make electric vehicles more affordable.
According to transport chiefs, the extension is great news for businesses due to the lower running costs of electric vehicles.
To be eligible for the scheme, vans will have to meet performance criteria to ensure safety, range and ultra-low tailpipe emissions. Consumers,both business and private, will receive the discount at the point of purchase.
