UK Launches Electric Car Grant Program
Electric cars are set to experience a breakthrough in 2011 due to a £5,000 car grant introduced by the government today, experts predict.
Motorists will have a choice of just one subsidised car to buy outright as the project is launched – the Mitsubishi i-MiEV – but should have a choice of nine or 10 fully electric and plug-in hybrid cars by 2012.
Among the first available to buy will be the Nissan Leaf in March, which is billed as the first mass-market electric car. It is currently being made in Japan and will be made in Sunderland from 2013 onwards.

Incentive for pure-electric car is equivalent to US$8,789 at current exchange rates.
