Island's only electric car dealer goes out of business

Fri, 24 Jun 2011

The Island's only electric car dealer has gone out of business.

It's partly being blamed on a lack of government subsidies for people buying green cars.

Electric vehicles are expensive and not many have been sold here.

In the UK and Ireland, the governments offer several thousands of pounds in subsidises for the purchase of electric vehicles.

Earlier this year it was announced that the Island definitely won't be adopting this approach.

It wouldn't be too difficult for Island residents to manage to bring over cheaper a car from across that has been subsidised.

Steve Burrows from e-Go is disappointed the Manx Government doesn't think it can afford subsidies.[Play audio file below]
