Zero-emission or low-emission vehicles are eligible for a plug-in grant, which means you can get a discount on the price of a brand new low-emission vehicle. This is thanks to a grant that the Government provides to vehicle dealerships and manufacturers.
And now the New All-Electric Ford E-Transit has been made eligible for this Plug-In Van Grant (PIVG).
The PIVG will pay for 35% off the purchase price up to a maximum of £5,000. This grant will be taken off the purchase price of the vehicle. For private, business, fleet or demonstration models, this means the actual price paid by the customer, including any dealer and manufacturer discount, and not the recommended retail price.
The purchase price includes duty and VAT and excludes any optional extras, delivery charges and first registration fees.
What features does the E-Transit have?
Earlier this year, the New All-Electric Ford E-Transit received a Gold Award from independent vehicle safety authority Euro NCAP for its advanced driver systems. Including Pre‑Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Traffic Sign Recognition, Blind Spot Information System with Lane Change Warning & Aid, Junction Assist, a 360-degree camera and Reverse Brake Assist.
As an all-electric vehicle the new E-Transit benefits from Zero Emission performance, meaning it can drive through low-emission zones or clean air zones and may also help your business to meet its sustainability and carbon dioxide reduction goals. What's more, you can increase the environmental benefits by choosing a renewable energy supplier when charging your electric vehicle.
Zero emissions also opens the door for the use of the E-Transit in situations door indoors or around food production/storage/distribution, meaning you can get closer to your load than ever before, without worrying about air pollutants.
With whisper-quiet electric engine technology, the E-Transit lets you work anywhere around the clock. Whether you’re working through the night or making early morning deliveries, the electric van will make sure local noise pollution is kept to an absolute minimum.
Which vans are all-electric?
Up and down the country businesses are switching to an electrified fleet, with a substantial amount of choice across the market right now, with even more to come. Including the UK’s best-selling van, the Ford Transit Custom, which Ford have announced is soon to be electrified.
Alongside the range of Ford electric vehicles, there are vehicles suited for every profession. Such as the Citroen E-Dispatch, a partner to the pros. Offering a load capacity of up to 1,400 kg, 6.6 m³ of loading volume and pulling up to 2.5 tonnes of trailer, the Dispatch is a heavyweight.
Whilst the International Van of the Year for 2022, the all-new Renault Kangoo offers a completely redesigned front end with an elegant chrome line between the grille and the front bumper. Complete with a 100% electric version which maximises usability and lowers emissions.
Finally, the Peugeot E-Expert van has numerous advantages to support your business and meet all your requirements. From a number of great driver assistance aids, including speed limit recognition and recommendation through to a distinctive design and range of engine options that provide you with the freedom of choice.
