Autumn Statement comment 2016

Jonathan Turner, Strategic Development Manager at Hitachi Capital Motor Finance commented:

“We are delighted that the Chancellor has announced £390 million future funding for low emission vehicles and electric vehicle incentives, including a new 100% first year allowance for electric vehicle charging infrastructure.  

“The Government’s grant scheme has so far been instrumental in encouraging increased purchase of electric vehicles, which not only reap benefits for the buyer who can save on petrol money, Vehicle Excise Duty and congestion charges, but are also hugely advantageous for the environment and crucial in reducing the emission of harmful gases.”
