hi everyone,

Just thought I would mention this/ The Irish government recently offered €5,000 off buying a new EV which is great. However when I asked if builders of converted vehicles would receive this grant, it was denied citing that the fund was only applicable to new cars and that weight distribution of the converted ev might be a safety issue?

Bearing in mind that the Irish governments plan is to have 10% of the cars on the road as EVs by 2020, extending the grant scheme to converted EV's would surely help this process along no end.

The government granted exclusive rights for ev distribution to Renault and Mitsubishi and the grants are only for their cars....

I was fortunate enough to get 5k from our local enterprise office but I doubt anyone else will ever get funding.
