Luxemburg upgrades e-mobility subsidies
Luxembourg is extending the subsidies introduced this year by another year for the purchase of electric vehicles (battery-electric and fuel cell) and plug-in hybrids. The amount of the premium will further remain at 5,000 euros in 2020.
The Luxembourg government has restructured its electromobility subsidies this year. The previous model of tax relief has been replaced by a new system with targeted subsidies. The premiums amount to 5,000 for electric cars and 2,500 for PHEVs. Moreover, all types of smaller electric vehicles can expect some funding too. Motorcycles and electric scooters can be subsidised up to 25% of the purchase price without VAT, but no more than 500 euros. Pedelecs may receive up to 300 euros. Electric kick scooters are not subsidised though.
The tax rebate introduced in 2017 that the new system is replacing, also amounted to 5,000 euros. The new regulation has been in force since the beginning of the year for new electrified cars registered in Luxembourg.
Applications can be submitted to the environmental ministry within seven months of initial registration. At the end of the year, the government intends to take stock to discuss the continuation of the amended system.
This month the little European Duchy also extended its charging network with Chargy announcing far-reaching upgrades.
