This is available for both private individuals and businesses.  For the last 7 years, the Plug-in Car Grant (PICG) has provided a discount to the price of over 160,000 new ultra-low emission vehicles. This is part of the governments Road to Zero Strategy. Go to your nearest dealer to make enquiries about this grant.
