Go Ultra Low is looking for Hyundai Ioniq EV owners to take part in an online ad campaign aimed at creating awareness and offering information about electric cars. If you, or anybody that you know, might be interested in taking part please contact [email protected] with your name, a contact number, a recent picture of yourself and (if applicable) the type of electric car that you drive. This will be for a 1 day shoot at the beginning of October and £500 will be offered to anyone that takes part in filming. The location of the shoot would be local to participant's areas.

I wonder if this program will point out the similiarities between "help to buy" house grants, and the "£4500 help to buy" EV - which have both done everything they can to push up the prices of their respective products, and merely improved the profits of the manufacturers - although I suppose you could argue that its government stimulus to the economy ?

either way, looking for Ioniq owners isn't going to be very difficult since there are about 3 aren't there?

One reason for the success of the Outlander PHEV was that it cost the same as the diesel version. This was only possible because of the grant.

Ideally the government would like ultra low emission cars to have 5% VAT (with perhaps a ceiling) to make it clear there is no subsidy, just low tax like on solar panels. Unfortunately that isn't possible under EU VAT rules, which is why there are grants.
