UK accepting applications for £5,000 ($7,798 U.S) Plug-In Car Grant

Back on December 14th, the UK government announced that several vehicles would qualify for a "plug-in car grant" that was scheduled to go live sometime in 2011. The grant – worth £5,000 ($7,798 U.S. at the current exchange rate) – is aimed at boosting sales of plug-in vehicles in the UK and get the country to be Europe's leading adopter of low-carbon cars.

Yesterday, the UK's plug-in car grant went live, which means that motorists from across the country can now apply for cash back from the government. At this time, nine vehicles – not all of which are currently available – are on the list to be eligible for the grant. These models include:
The list of eligible vehicles is expected to grow in the future.
