Plug-in Grant Levels

Low emission vehicles that have been approved by the government are eligible for a grant. A percentage of the purchase price up to a maximum monetary amount will be applied by the dealer to the prices' of brand new vehicles.

To be eligible for the grant, cars must cost less than £32,000. This is the recommended retail price (RRP), and includes VAT and delivery fees.

For company car drivers the P11D value will be based on the original list price before deducting the grant.
