Vauxhall confirms its electric car models will continue to remain eligible for government plug-in car grant
Mokka-e and Vivaro-e electric van both see price changes while the Corsa-e remains unchanged
Vauxhall has announced revised pricing for its electric car range to ensure customers can still access the revised Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG) incentive. Recently, the government announced changes to the incentive, reducing the grant from £3,000 to £2,500, with fully electric vehicles (EVs) costing more than £35,000 no longer eligible.
Vauxhall joins Citroën and MG who have also helped customers by adjusting prices and retaining grant levels. To ensure customers can still benefit from the grant, Vauxhall has announced new prices for its all-new Mokka-e and Vivaro-e Life. Vauxhall, who are most famously known for their Corsa, hasn’t had to alter prices for the electric version of this model, the Corsa-e, because it qualifies for the grants.
The new Mokka-e sees prices revised across the entire trim range to ensure all derivatives remain eligible for the grant. Prices for the Mokka-e SE Premium now start from £33,040 (OTR), while the range-topping Mokka-e Launch Edition starts from £34,995 (OTR).
To ensure the Vivaro-e Life electric van qualifies for the new PiCG Edition models have seen their list price realigned by more than £2,000, with prices starting from £34,995 (OTR). The Vivaro-e Life Combi will be the same specification level as the Edition model and will also start from £34,995 (OTR).
Paul Wilcox, managing director at Vauxhall, said: “At Vauxhall, we believe in making sure our vehicles are as accessible as possible to the greatest number of people, and especially so when it comes to zero emissions-in-use motoring, so I am pleased to confirm that all Corsa-e, all Mokka-e and the new Vivaro-e Life Combi are eligible for the Government Plug-in Car Grant.”
Currently, Vauxhall are offering Corsa-e customers the option of a free Wallbox Pulsar Plus charger professionally installed by a British Gas engineer. British Gas will also offer 30,000 free green miles to Vauxhall customers through a British Gas EV dual fuel tariff. It offers cheaper electricity overnight for charging between midnight and 5am from 100 percent renewable energy, with 30,000 miles free of charge.
The price changes for the all-new Mokka-e and the Vivaro-e Life are effective immediately.
