On 13 October 2016, a major £35 million package to boost the uptake of ultra-low emission cars and zero emission electric motorcycles and scooters was unveiled by Transport Minister John Hayes of United Kingdom. The fresh funding commitment is expected to see thousands more electric vehicle chargepoints installed on streets and at workplaces across the UK, after the number of new ultra-low emission vehicles registered rose by 250% in just 2 years (Source: www.gov.uk). An initial £3.75 million is being made available for electric motorcycle and scooter riders who want to go green, providing them with up to 20% off the cost of an electric motorcycle or scooter. Buyers will be able to claim a maximum discount of £1,500. Unlike cars, electric motorcycles and scooters can be charged at home or work using normal plug sockets, which makes them more accessible.
