UK Government Plug In Taxi Grant

Back to Grant Finder

What is the grant available for?

More green taxis will take to the UK’s roads thanks to an extension to the Plug-in Taxi Grant announced 21 February 2024, following its initial success.

Cab drivers will be able to keep up momentum through extended funding until 5 April 2025 at a rate of £6,000 per vehicle, providing certainty to those who are looking to make the switch to electric in the next year.

Since its introduction in 2017, the Plug-in Taxi Grant has been met with enthusiasm, providing more than £50 million to support the purchase of over 9,000 zero emission cabs – supporting skilled British jobs in the car industry and helping to decarbonise the taxi fleet.

What grant amounts are available?

Plug-in Taxi Grant provides funding of £6,000 per electric taxi vehicle and is extended until April 2025.

The government is continuing to target incentives where they have the most impact while delivering value for money for the taxpayer, which is why a reduced grant level of £6,000 has been chosen to support the market as it matures further.
