    I just heard on the radio that the subsidy on electric cars will be cut, and removed completely on hybrid vehicles

    The Gov notice is here:

    Glad we went ahead an ordered an EV in August for delivery in September, as I partly suspected this might happen as a result of the review.

    Fingers crossed that it will not impact future EV car prices as with any government subsidy (e.g. save to buy ISA) the product price has already factored in the subsidy, so shaving 1k off the cost of new cars shouldn't be a problem.

  • Agreed but by marketing it as cough specific people think there's something extra so they buy this rather than gene? https://t.co/hATY3W8Yia

  • Good news for those aggressively criticising this poll and trying to pull it apart. I've just got off a 3 way call? https://t.co/Pu750aktyg

  • a) I dont believe it is misleading b) I don't believe my poll is badly worded, and certainly don't know it is. If? https://t.co/0DduzIaHBk
