SMMT responds to Plug-in Car Grant announcement

17 December 2015 #SMMT News

Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said, “We welcome the continuation of the Plug-in Car Grant, which has helped Britain become the fastest-growing market for ultra-low emission vehicles in Europe.

“The recently agreed global climate change targets underscore the important contribution ultra-low emission vehicles make – and will continue to make – to reducing carbon emissions. Manufacturers are offering increasing numbers of these vehicles – but a consistently applied incentive regime is still needed over the coming years to help consumers adopt these ground-breaking technologies.

“The changes to the regime will need effective management and SMMT looks forward to working with government to ensure the planning needs of manufacturers and consumers – both fleet and private – are met.”
