You can get a discount on the price of new low-emission vehicles through a government grant given to dealerships and manufacturers. You do not need to do anything if you want to purchase one of these vehicles – Allen Ford, Essex Ford or SMC Ford will include the grant’s value in the vehicle’s price. The maximum grant available for cars is £3,500. The grant’s value depends on the type of vehicle. Not all low-emission vehicles are eligible for a grant. Only vehicles that have been approved by the British government qualify for a grant.
