The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) has now changed its name to The Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV). It is a government body that provides grants to support the initial purchase cost of eligible vehicles and charging point installations.
The Plug-In Car Grant (PiCG) provides a subsidy up to a maximum amount which is now changing to 35% of the purchase price up to £2,500, with a maximum RRP of £35,000 inc VAT and delivery on eligible vehicles.
The Plug-In Van Grant (PiVG) is now 35% of the purchase price up to £3,000 for a van of less than 2.5 tonnes gvw; and 35% of the purchase price up to £6,000 for vans 2.5 - 3.5 tonnes gvw. The CO2 emissions must be less than 50g/km and the vehicle must be able to travel 60 miles at least without emissions.
Customers can gain advice from our sales teams. When a customer places an order for an eligible electric vehicle, it is the retailer’s responsibility to make a grant application to OLEV on behalf of the customer. Extras and factory fitted options are not eligible for the grant.
If you have any questions or queries, please speak to our sales team at the appropriate branch.
There is no application process for getting a government grant for your EV. The grant will be automatically applied for by a member of our sales team.
