Plug-in car grant extended to February 2016  14c1134_24

The government has announced that it will extend its £5000 grant contribution to people buying any ultra-low emission vehicles’ (ULEVs) to February 2016.

Plug-in cars under 75g/km are eligible for the grant as well as pure battery electric vehicles and hybrids with plug-in charging capability.

After the February deadline it could possibly continue on a tiered system based on emission levels. The long term review will be discussed in November 2015.
