E-car buyer’s premium starts

Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi)

The ordinance on premiums payable to those who purchase an electric vehicle is coming into force on 2 July, and will apply retroactively from the 18 May 2016. Economy and energy minister Sigmar Gabriel said in a press release that the premium would be an incentive to make e-cars part of everyday life and give a boost to the whole value chain of e-mobility in Germany. Buyers of purely electric cars will receive a premium of 4,000 euros, plug-in-hybrid cars receive a support of 3,000 euros.
