£500 million cash to Boost Government electric car policy

Department for Transport have a new initiative, if it can be called that, you may just call it a budget.

Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg announced a £500 million injection to put more spark into electric car sales and provide additional charging points.

The £5,000 taxpayer subsidy for motorists to buy electric cars, such as the Nissan Leaf, Vauxhall Ampera and BMW i3, is to be extended for two years to 2017 — or until at least 50,000 grants have been claimed — at a cost to taxpayers of £200 million.

we know the Government's electric car policy is in a bit of a mess — address the lack of charging points then stop ordinary cars parking in charging spaces.
