Big Six energy giant ScottishPower has swept into the electric vehicle (EV) market with a new partnership aimed at providing a “one-stop-shop” for customers looking to buy an EV and home charging point backed by a green electricity tariff. Through a deal with UK private car dealership Arnold Clark prospective EV buyers will be able to purchase or lease an EV of their choice, book a home charging point installation, and sign up to a 100 per cent renewable electricity tariff as part of the same package.

New car sales are continuing to fall and the figures might have been worse had there not been a surge in the buying of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles before a cut in subsidies announced for this month. The latest industry figures show new registrations in October coming in at 153,599, 3 per cent lower than in the same month last year. That has extended the decline in the year to date with 160,000 fewer new cars sold in the first ten months, a year-on-year fall of more than 7 per cent to 2.06 million.
