    UK Plug-in Car Grant offers a discount on the cost of buying an electric car

    n the UK, new electric cars are eligible for a plug-in car grant (PiCG). The government puts a sum of money towards the purchase of zero-emissions vehicles, creating a cash incentive for buyers to switch to electric cars and vans.

    You can get a discount on the price of brand new low-emission vehicles through a grant the government gives to vehicle dealerships and manufacturers.

    The maximum grant available for cars is £2,500.

    Vehicles eligible for a grant
    The amount of the grant depends on which category the vehicle is in. The 7 categories are:

    • cars
    • motorcycles
    • mopeds
    • small vans
    • large vans
    • taxis
    • trucks

    Not all low-emission vehicles will get a grant. Only vehicles that have been approved by the government are eligible for a grant.
