The aim of the eSPSV20 Grant Scheme is to increase the uptake of low emission SPSVs. It is aimed at improving air quality in urban areas, together with influencing the uptake of low emission passenger cars by improving general perception and awareness of the benefits of low emission vehicles. 

The SPSV Industry is regarded as a champion in the normalisation of electric vehicle use. 
The Scheme is funded by DTTAS and administered by NTA as the licensing authority for SPSVs
