PLUG-IN TAXI GRANT
In March 2017 the Department for Transport announced a further £64 million of investment to promote the use of electric taxis.
This money will support drivers in two important ways:
1. A £50 million Plug-in Taxi Grant programme. This will give taxi drivers up to £7,500 off the price of a new vehicle. Taxi drivers who switch to the new electric cabs could also save around £2,800 in fuel costs a year.
2. £14 million of investment will deliver new dedicated charging points for electric taxis in 10 council areas.
These projects are expected to deliver around 400 rapid and 150 fast charging points which will enable the take-up of around 23,000 ULEV taxis nationally including supporting existing plug in private hire vehicles.
