Car,Van grants available or not

Hi all,
My mate went to buy a new van just on the day when the grants ended.
He would have to pay another £7000 or £8000 more. He walked away.
Does anyone know what if any grants are available or not?
This is for Manchester.

The Government recently dropped the funding

Thanks john,
We should have bought evs one year ago, there prices were lower then,with the grant and no upgrade due to lower price and no or little discount been offered now
