Question for Department for Transport

UIN 58983, tabled on 19 October 2021

Answered on

22 October 2021

There were 39287 approved orders for the Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG) in 2019 and 92879 approved orders for the PiCG in 2020. We are unable to provide detailed information for 2021 to date because orders for the PiCG are allowed 9 or 12 months to complete and are not counted as approved until the car is registered, delivered to the customer and the grant subsequently paid.
