As dealerships electrify their forecourts, dealers have communicated to NFDA that there are mixed messages coming from charge point installers about whether dealerships can claim the Workplace Charging Grant.

The advice from the Government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) is clear, dealerships do have access to the scheme provided that the chargepoint is installed for:

  • Customer cars being serviced
  • Fleet cars used for demo purposes (later sold to customers)
  • Loan cars
  • Dealership employees

The Workplace Charging Grant covers up to 75% of the purchase and installation costs, up to a maximum of £500 per socket.
