With the recent announcement from OLEV that 11,260 claims have been made through the Plug-in Car Grant scheme, the total number of electric cars and vans in the UK now exceeds 13,000 vehicles for the first time.

The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) has also published figures which show that, as of 30 June 2014, 637 claims have been made through the Plug-in Van Grant scheme.

Taken together with 1,379 electric cars and vans which are not eligible for the Plug-in Grant scheme, but are nevertheless fully electric, the total UK light-duty electric fleet will number 13,276 in the coming weeks as vehicles are delivered and formally registered for use on UK roads.
