Ok I don’t know if its been posted before and I wanted to help, so thought I would post this, if one of you want to tidy and make a sticky it would provide useful info for those looking to get a PHEV which motability don’t provide a charger for.
First of, just because motabilty are not providing you with a charger its not all doom and gloom, The Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) is a grant that provides a 75% contribution to the cost of one chargepoint and its installation. A grant cap is set at £350 (including VAT) per installation. The main requirement is that a person owns, leases, or has ordered a qualifying vehicle and has dedicated off-street parking at their property. A person may apply for 2 chargepoints at the same property if they have 2 qualifying vehicles.
What this means is the Govt through these approved installers will pay 350 towards the charge point, the main rule is it must be a smart charge point, the cheapest I have seen from the installers is $450 which would leave you £100 to pay. but I advise to go with a company that will do all the paperwork for you.
been mindful to search for info on the approved installers and find the ones that will do the paperwork for you as I know a lot of you will hate paperwork and form filling (thanks to dwp).
If this post save any of you money I hope its useful.
