Electric car buyers are to receive a subsidy by 2025

Die Federal government wants to promote electromobility even more and make driving with e-cars more attractive. According to the decision paper for the “car summit” of politics and business, which should take place on Tuesday evening via video conference, it wants to support electromobility with an additional three billion euros and extend the so-called innovation bonus until 2025. Car buyers can thus receive a subsidy when purchasing an electric car beyond 2021.

The state and the manufacturer are currently financing a premium of up to 9,000 euros. So far, both fully electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids have been funded. From 2022 onwards, the premium will only be paid for plug-in hybrids if they can achieve certain ranges with the electric drive. In total, the federal government will provide up to one billion euros for the premium by 2025. For a long time, the previous environmental bonus had hardly increased the incentive to buy. Since the increase to the “innovation bonus”, the sales figures have increased faster.

The paper for the “Auto Summit”, a regular exchange between the federal government, the federal states and representatives of the automotive industry, also includes a funding program for the exchange of older trucks. Federal Minister of Transport had on it Andreas Scheuer (CSU) squat. Above all, alternative drives using electricity and hydrogen are to be promoted.

Companies should also receive a subsidy for renewing their fleets if, after buying a new Euro 6 diesel truck, they break up an older Euro 3, 4 or 5 truck. The federal government has budgeted 500 million euros for funding, plus the same amount for public procurement. A future fund is also endowed with one billion euros. It is intended to support medium and long-term strategy projects at the location as well as the regional transformation.
