Ford makes up the money on LPG Transit and Connect

FORD has moved to help fleets which have been affected by the changes in the PowerShift grants for LPG-powered vehicles.

The Energy Savings Trust, which organises the grants, announced that they would end after March this year, leaving some Ford customers who have ordered vehicles short by £700-£800.

On the eve of the CV Show at the NEC in Birmingham last week, Ford announced that it would make up the money lost for all customers who had ordered LPG-powered Transit and Transit Connect models and would lose out.

Ford commercial vehicle director Gary Whittam said: ‘We are aware that the cessation of grants will cause concern for those customers who have ordered bi-fuel vehicles and made an application for a grant. This kind of uncertainty can affect the operation of a business so we want to take away any doubt for anyone who has ordered a Ford bi-fuel commercial vehicle.’
