UK Government Continues Its Support for Electric Vehicles
The UK Government remains committed to electric cars and there is “no date in the diary” for stopping subsidies to make them more affordable. That was the message from Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister, as he helped to launch Go Ultra Low, a £2.5 million campaign to promote the benefits of electric and plug-in hybrid cars to buyers.
Clegg was speaking at an event held at the Ace Café in north London, where he also announced the government will invest £9 million to install more rapid charge-points to make motorway journeys by electric car feasible.
Take-up of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles remains low despite subsidies of up to £5,000 for cars and £8,000 for vans. Last year the Government said that as of the end of September, just 5,702 claims for the subsidy had been made.
