OLEV EVHS Grants

This is a government grant for electric cars provided by the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV). The OLEV Grant also known as Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme (EVHS) can provide around 35% - 75% off the cost of purchasing & installing a home charging point up to a maximum of £500. Each household can claim up to two charging points but only one charging point per eligible vehicle. Available for most electric cars and plug-in hybrid cars.

To qualify for the OLEV Grant you must meet the below criteria:

  • You have not made a previous grant-claim for your vehicle.
  • Either you own an electric vehicle, have ordered an electric vehicle or have an electric vehicle leased or company car
  • You intend to keep the vehicle for 6 months or longer from the date you took ownership

  • You must have private or dedicated off-street parking such as a driveway or garage where you can park and charge the vehicle?
