Deputy PM Proposes Sudsidy For EV Purchases in UK
Tens of thousands of motorists will be able to claim a government subsidy to convert their cars to cheap gas power or buy new electric ones under a scheme announced yesterday by John Prescott, the deputy prime minister.
Electric cars and dual electric/petrol cars will get a subsidy of up to pounds 4,500. They perform like normal cars but can go only 50 miles before they need recharging.
Mr Prescott said: 'This confirms the commitment in our 10-year transport plan to accelerate the take-up of cleaner fuels and more fuel efficient vehicles. We want to improve air quality and reduce the impact of vehicles on climate change.
