Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive, said: "Extending the plug-in van grant is welcome as it will encourage more operators to make the switch to electric vehicles over the next three years"
Mike continued, "Furthermore, the confirmation of the continuation of the current licensing regulations will make it easier to recruit drivers for the heaviest electric vans.
"While the van market saw record electric uptake last year, it remains some distance behind cars, with battery electric vans making up just 3.6% of new registrations. The speed of uptake must be increased, therefore, which requires attractive incentives and significant investment in EV charge points especially those that meet the specific needs of commercial vehicles in every region of the UK."
