Highways England invests £9.3m in ‘try before you buy’ EV scheme

Businesses are being offered a free trial of EVs for two months

Highways England has announced an investment of £9.3 million for a scheme that allows businesses to try electric vehicles (EVs) for free before they buy the zero carbon cars.

The 'try before you buy' initiative has been designed to encourage businesses with diesel van fleets to make the shift to cleaner and lower carbon vehicles.

The funding is being given to local authorities, which will offer businesses a free trial of EVs for two months.
