More Benefits Being Given to Plug-In Vehicles

As part of a £40million scheme that’s pushing the uptake of electric vehicles there are several new incentives being considered. Currently these would be available in several cities across the UK, but if they prove to be successful the enticements may be rolled out nationwide.

Currently the cities that will be the main benefactors of this scheme are:

  • London
  • Bristol
  • Milton Keynes
  • Nottingham
  • Oxford
  • Dundee
  • York

While the innovative ideas and incentives are still being decided, some of the most likely ones include building more rapid-charging hubs, street lighting with charging points, free parking and even allowing electric cars to use bus lanes in city centres.

This isn’t just a move to encourage individuals to invest in plug-in vehicles, it could potentially save fleet operators thousands every year. Small businesses will also see a huge benefit from these changes, allowing them to operate on a much greener basis and save money on their everyday running costs. Not only is there a huge savings on road tax and running costs, but utilising the above incentives could allow for easier navigation of city centres - getting your vehicles to where they are needed faster.

These new changes could be the start of something much bigger, with the potential for these incentives to be spread out nationwide over the next couple of months or years. Getting in on these changes early will allow you to maximise the savings available, however there’s no rush to upgrade to plug-in if you’ve recently changed your vehicle - this is the future, it’s time to embrace it.
