Plug-in car grant for electric cars to end - RAC reaction

Commenting on the Government's decision to scrap the plug-in car grant, which provided drivers with a financial incentive to choose a new electric car, RAC head of policy Nicholas Lyes said:

“The UK’s adoption of electric cars is so far impressive but in order to make them accessible to everyone, we need prices to fall - having more on the road is one important way of making this happen, so we're disappointed the Government has chosen to end the grant at this point. If costs remain too high, the ambition of getting most people into electric cars will be stifled."

The RAC is supporting drivers in the switch to electric cars in a number of ways, including via its electric vehicle leasing scheme.
