Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

The Bri­tish Ve­hi­cle Rental and Leas­ing As­so­ci­a­tion has wel­comed the Gov­ern­ment’s an­nounce­ment that the cur­rent Plug-In Car Grant scheme will con­tinue un­til at least Fe­bru­ary 2016, while the Plug-In Van Grant will con­tinue in­def­i­nitely.

BVRLA Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Gerry Keaney said:“It is great that the gov­ern­ment has pro­vided more cer­tainty about the life­span of this vi­tal in­cen­tive and the nine-month lead time limit for qual­i­fy­ing ve­hi­cles to be de­liv­ered and reg­is­tered.

“De­mand for ul­tra-low emis­sion ve­hi­cles is grow­ing rapidly, but we would urge the gov­ern­ment to con­tinue sup­port­ing this nascent mar­ket by ex­tend­ing the Plug-in Car Grant be­yond next Fe­bru­ary.”
