Transport minister Jesse Norman has told The Guardian that e-bike subsidy could happen. 

This would bring e-bikes in line with electric cars and grants which can be purchased with grants of £4,500 per vehicle. "Low-emission vehicles" are eligible for this government "plug-in grant" but despite requests from the likes of the Bicycle Association the scheme has yet to be extended to e-bikes.

Norman said : “We’ve done some work on [an e-bike grant] already, and I haven’t looked at the outcomes yet, and they might not be ready yet."

But, he added, "there’s a case in principle.”
