Plug-in Grant for Zero Emissions Commercial Vehicles

As part of the government's plan to phase out the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles over the coming decades, the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) has introduced the plug-in truck grant as an incentive for truck buyers to make the switch to battery electric or fuel-cell vehicles. 

Zemo Partnership is working closely with government and our members to support the Plug-in Truck Grant scheme by developing test plans, reviewing and analysing test data, providing technical guidance for applicants submitting vehicles for assessment, and preparing and issuing test certificates.
