First motorcycle bought using Plug-In grant
The first electric motorcycle bought using the government’s Plug-In vehicle grant has gone to Fred Murphy, 48, from Redhill in Surrey – congratulations to Mr Murphy on the purchase of his new Zero FXS.
The Plug-In vehicle grant offers a price reduction of 20% of the total purchase cost or £1,500, whichever is the cheaper, on electric motorcycles courtesy of the government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles. For anyone looking to save money on their next bike and help the planet at the same time, the grant will run until 2020 and is arranged by the dealer instead of by the customer – offering savings in terms of money, hassle and carbon footprint all in one go.
The Plug-In grant was introduced to help reduce carbon emissions and encourage bikers and the industry to adopt electric machines. It has existed since 2011 and was initially only open to four-wheelers, but was later expanded to include motorcycles as well.
