Tuesday 23rd April 2013 - 10:50 Greenhous Extend Range on Government Funding for Ampera
Greenhous Extend Range on Government Funding for Ampera Greenhous customers can now benefit from free installation of a home charging unit for their Ampera extended-range electric vehicles.

The Government has recently announced funding for owners of electric vehicles (EVs) where they will cover 75 per cent of costs for home charging unit installations up to a maximum of £1,000 including VAT. Vauxhall will meet the remaining 25 per cent on the same basis for new retail customers taking up the offer.

The Government’s £37 million package of benefits also includes additional measures for local authorities to install on-street charging posts and rapid chargers. Train operators can also claim for charge point installations at railway stations for EV commuters.

Dan Foskett, sales manager at Greenhous Telford, commented “This announcement from the Government is extremely exciting for anyone that is interested in purchasing an Ampera. By having the cost of their home charging solution covered, switching over to electric is now becoming easier than ever.”

“The Ampera really is the future for economic and environmentally friendly driving. In today’s society, people are becoming increasingly eco-conscious - many looking for alternative ways to lessen their carbon footprint. Electric cars have been around for a while, but the Ampera is the first to offer a 360 mile range.”

Dan concluded “Here at Greenhous, the Ampera has been a huge success and we have even been named the top performer for sales outside of London. We have highly trained specialists on site meaning the customer is always in safe hands. The Government funded scheme, together with Vauxhall’s input has meant that running an electric vehicle is now a much more viable option for those wanting to make the change.”

Ampera pricing starts at £29,995 on-the-road (including £5,000 government grant) for the Earth model. The car is also covered by Vauxhall’s Lifetime Warranty.

Customers are also given further peace of mind thanks to the Love It or Return It campaign. If purchasers find that within the first 30 days/1500 miles of ownership the Ampera isn't right for them, they can return it to Greenhous.
