Plug-in grants for electric vehicles
23/12/2021

The government has announced significant changes to the low-emission vehicles plug-in grant scheme. The changes became effective on 15 December 2021. The changes have been introduced in response to soaring demand for electric vehicles and to help target those buying the most affordable zero emission cars. More than 10% of cars sold in 2021 were electric.

Under the previous rules a grant of up to £2,500 was available for qualifying cars with an 'on the road' price cap of up to £35,000. From 15 December 2021, the government will provide grants of up to £1,500 for electric cars priced under £32,000. There are currently estimated to be 20 models on the market that would qualify. The support for wheelchair accessible vehicles is being prioritised, these will retain the £2,500 grant and a higher £35,000 price cap although there are a limited number of grants available.

There are also grants available for specified motorcycles, mopeds, small vans, large vans, taxis and trucks. Grant rates for the plug-in van grant are now £5,000 for large vans and £2,500 for small vans, with a limit of 1,000 per customer per year. Motorcycle and moped grants have also changed, with the government now providing £500 off the cost of a motorcycle, and £150 for mopeds, with a price cap on vehicles of £10,000.

The plug-in grant scheme was first launched in 2011 and is available across the UK with dealers using the grant towards the price of eligible new cars. The paperwork for the grant application is handled by the dealer selling the vehicle.

The scheme is open to qualifying purchases by private individuals and businesses.
