'Makes sense': Calls for huge VAT cut on public electric car chargers for cheaper charging


Petrol currently stands at 163.3p per litre, while diesel remains far more expensive at 177.11p per litre.

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) also echoed these calls, saying that VAT on electricity used for public charging points should be cut to match that for home use.

It said this would ensure that all EV owners are treated equally, regardless of where they charge their vehicle.

Speaking before the Spring Statement, Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said: “Government must … enable this transition, continuing support for home and workplace charging, boosting public chargepoint rollout to tackle charging anxiety and, given the massive increase in energy prices, reducing VAT on public charging points.
