THE Plug-in Van Grant, which offers up to 20% off the price of an ultra-low emission van, will continue in some form beyond 2020.
This has been confirmed by the Department for Transport in its recent publication ‘The Road to Zero‘ (July 2018).
It said that the current grant would be maintained at its current level until October 2018. Incentives beyond that date would continue, but have not been confirmed.
To qualify for the grant, vans must have emissions below 75g/km and the ability to travel in zero emission mode for at least 10 miles. The grant available is 20% of the purchase price capped at £8000.
To apply for the Plug-in Van Grant, the dealer will do the paperwork for you by including the value of the grant in the van’s price. For businesses that are leasing their vans, the lease price will reflect the inclusion of the grant.
The winner of the Best Green Van of the Year in the Business Van of the Year Awards was the Renault Kangoo ZE.
