The British prime minister, Boris Johnson, is said to be considering a scrappage scheme that would get people out of diesel and petrol vehicles and into cleaner electric vehicles.
According to a report from UK newspaper The Telegraph, drivers could be given up to £6,000 ($7,600) towards a new electric vehicle if they scrap their old combustion engined motor.
it sounds like very good news for the UK car market and its consumers. Earlier this year, the nation’s government announced that it cut its subsidy for electric vehicle by £500, taking it down to £3,000.
Considering that the UK government is also aspiring to ban the sale of all new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2035, it’s good to see it thinking about doing something a little more proactive to support buyers rather than coercing them with legislation.
