(PRWEB UK) 5 February 2014
A windfall of £5000 awaits millionaire buyers of the 167mph Porsche Panamera S-E Hybrid - courtesy of the UK Government.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said, “The extremely low running costs of these cars help drivers save money and we are allocating more than £9 million to boost chargepoints across the country to help drivers to go green.”
A spokesman at WeLoveAnyCar.com, the UK's largest on-line car review site said, "This move will certainly make a number of drivers go green - green with envy at the sight of millionaires given so much money to buy one of the fastest, most sought after cars in the world."
The Porsche Panamera S-E Hybrid is one of the luxury car company's top models at £88,967 (before grant discount) and comes with an advanced hybrid system - one where the top speed is more reliant on combustion than electricity.
The Government has published a guide to claiming the grant and is at pains to stress how easy it is to make the claim of 20% of the price of the qualifying cars. All car buyers have to do is ask the dealer, who sorts out all the paperwork. No doubt all dealers of qualifying cars, including Porsche, are well briefed to help their customers make the most of the incentive,
