Low carbon vehicle strategy boosted by grants

Low carbon vehicle strategy boosted by grants
Motorists could receive up to £5,000 from the government to buy an electric vehicle.

The Department for Transport announced the venture today (February 25th), which will see London, Milton Keynes and the north east gain over 11,000 vehicle recharging points during the next three years.

Those wanting to buy the cars will be able to claim the £5,000 grant at the point of purchase.

In total, the government is investing £450 million into the low carbon vehicle strategy in order to hit UK targets to reduce carbon emissions from transport.

It is hoped that the UK will become one of the major markets and exporters of electric vehicles.

Pat McFadden, the business minister, said: "Low carbon vehicles are an important part of the broader shift to a low carbon economy.

"We have already committed £450m to delivering our ambitious vision of supporting suppliers of low carbon technology, encouraging demand from consumers and enabling lead UK cities and regions to switch on charging infrastructure."
