Grants and Incentives 

Low-emission vehicles eligible for a plug-in grant

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.

You do not need to do anything if you want to buy one of these vehicles - we will include the value of the grant in the vehicle’s price.

The maximum grant available for cars is £3,500.
