Over £109 million of funding for driverless and low carbon projects

The government has announced a range of commitments to ultra low emission and autonomous vehicles.

This includes a commitment that both the plug-in car grant and the electric vehicle homecharge schemes at will continue at their current rates. The government also made a commitment that by March 2018 it will publish a new long term strategy for promoting the transition to zero emission road transport.

 The plug-in car grant, which has already supported the purchase of more than 95,000 ultra low emission vehicles, will continue to provide £4,500 to category 1 vehicles and £2,500 to category 2 and 3 vehicles until at least October 2017. The electric vehicle homecharge scheme will continue to provide grant funding of up to 75% towards the cost of a domestic chargepoint (capped at £500) until March 2018. Both schemes will then be subject to a further review.
