Fewer than 900 applications for the Government's £5,000 grant towards an electric car were made last year.

The figures came as the Government announced that the plug-in car grant will carry on until at least 2015.

Ministers announced that the grant will also apply to buyers of plug-in vans, who will get 20% off, up to a total of £8,000.
