Three major car manufacturers have joined the UK Government’s campaign aiming to promote the benefits of ultra-low emissions vehicles (ULEVs).
Audi, Mitsubishi and Volkswagen have pledged to support the Go Ultra Low initiative.=, joining BMW, Nissan, Renault and Toyota.
The manufacturers together offer 15 ULEVs, all of which are available for the government plug-in grant of up to £5,000 for a car and up to £8,000 for a van.
Statistics from the government suggest 25,000 vehicles have been bought through the scheme so far.
Transport Minister Baroness Kramer said: “The public are increasingly seeing the benefits of ultra-low emission vehicles, which have low running costs and are easily chargeable at home or on the street.”
