Electric cars in this country won't get plug-in grants anymore

Electric cars in the UK won't get plug-in car grants anymore, as the government has scrapped the scheme that was operational for the last 11 years. The UK government has officially removed the 1,500-pound grant that was meant for helping the drivers to own electric vehicles. Christened Plug-In Car Grant (PICG), was initially designed to offer up to a 5,000-pound grant for EV buyers.

The UK government has said that now it is focusing on improving electric vehicle charging. It also claimed that the government has spent 1.4 billion pounds under this scheme since its inception of this grant system. The UK government also claims that this scheme has helped in the country's electric car revolution by supporting more than half a million clean vehicle buyers.

While the grant has been scrapped, the UK government has said that it will still be honoured for those who purchased the vehicle shortly before the announcement and 300 million pounds are still available to support the buyers of electric taxis, motorcycles, vans, trucks and wheelchair accessible vehicles.
