Start of the electric car revolution?

143426_1_5In a duel move by the government new grants and subsidies are being introduced that it is hoped will fast forward the uptake of electric cars in the UK.

The first is a grant towards a new electric vehicle of upto £4,500, you can find out more details here: it even covers upto £8,000 for an electric van for business purposes.

The second is subsidy that they plan to introduce during the summer that will cover some of the costs for a business that wants to install and electric charging point. This has been seen as a key issue that has slowed the uptake of electric vehicles, especially for those with longer journeys.

There is a downside to this though as it is thought that the government will introduce new taxes for diesel cars.

Why not have a look at some of our cars that qualify for the grant?
