The Government Plug-In Car Grant (PiCG)
As a vehicle that has CO2 emissions of less than 50g/km and a zero emission range of at least 70 miles Jaguar I-PACE qualifies for the full £3,500 Government Plug-in Car Grant.
Help to purchase your electric vehicle
The UK government offers ‘plug-in grant’ for consumers buying eligible new Hybrid or Electric vehicles. The retailer that you purchase the vehicle from will include the value of the grant in the vehicle’s price. There are 6 categories of vehicle which determine the grant that is given, based on CO2 emissions. Jaguar I-PACE has been awarded 'Category 1' status due to 'CO2 emissions of less than 50g/km and can travel at least 70miles (112km) without any CO2 emissions at all' - according to Government guidelines. This ensures maximum grant funding towards the purchase price of a new I-PACE.
Help with excise duties and registering your electric vehicle
As electricity is not considered to be a fuel, plug-in electric vehicles do not incur fuel duty for the electricity they use and are therefore exempt from VED.
Help to buy electric vehicle charging equipment
The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) provides grant funding of up to 75% towards the cost of installing electric vehicle charge points at domestic properties across the UK. The Workplace Charging Scheme (WCS) is a voucher-based scheme that provides support towards the up-front costs of the purchase and installation of electric vehicle charge-points, for eligible businesses, charities and public sector organisations.
