The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) has confirmed further funding of £400m for the Plug-in Car Grant which will now continue until March 2018

This Support from Government further emphasises the switch to electric vehicles and forms part of the strategy towards more sustainable transport along with the introduction of an Ultra Low Emission Zone in London and the Clean Air Zones being introduced in 5 other UK cities by 2020 (Birmingham, Leeds, Nottingham, Derby and Southampton) .

As eConnect Cars looks to grow its fleet the extension of the Plug-In Car Grant supports the business model for continued growth over the next few years.

James Wright, Nissan Motor (GB) Managing Director, said: “[The] decision by Government has reaffirmed their commitment to the uptake of ultra-low emission vehicles.

“With Government support and Nissan’s investment of over £420m into electric vehicles in the UK, our British made Nissan LEAF has increased in popularity with many UK customers already enjoying the benefits of zero emission and low cost driving.

“This announcement, together with ongoing infrastructure developments, should see the growth and wider deployment of this technology continue.”
