Only ten percent of e-car buyer’s premium budget used to date
The Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA) has received 46,897 applications for the e-car buyer’s premium since its official launch in 2016, according to a BAFA press release. A total of 21,616 applications came from private buyers. BAFA President Andreas Obersteller told Die Welt that so far only about 65 million euros had been used of the total 600 million euros available for the programme, which runs until 2019. Part of the unused budget could be used to finance the expansion of much-needed private charging points for electric cars, said Obersteller.
