That may be after a final decision on the fate of the £5,000 discount – along with a decision regarding financial support promised to Vauxhall, Ford and Nissan by the previous UK government – is made. Paul Everitt, chief executive of The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders Ltd., (SMMT) said:
In another blow to green-minded Brits, the government also announced the closing of its grant program that helps individuals and businesses install heat pumps and solar panels.We fully understand why the new government wants to validate spending decisions which were made in the recent past. But we believe that these expenditures which are going to be supporting the UK motor industry are consistent with the government's priorities and represent value for money.
