About This Offer
With the aim to tackle pollution in the capital and improve air quality, the Mayor of London has launched a scrappage scheme offering a grant of up to £6,000 to help toward the cost of leasing a new electric van. The scrappage scheme applies to micro businesses, charities and sole traders operating in London. This means if you’re driving a pre euro 6 van in London for work you could be eligible for the grant.
By switching to an electric van you would also be exempt from the daily congestion charge and London’s new Ultra Low Emissions Zone charges which operate 7 days a week
