From January 1, 2023, financing for plug-in hybrid cars will change. The Department for Climate Protection announced the change to funding for e-mobility on Friday via radio broadcast.
With the end of the year, the purchase of plug-in hybrid cars is subsidized at € 2,500 if the car is able to cover at least 60 kilometers on electricity alone. So far, 50 kilometers have been enough.
Stricter rules for plug-in hybrid financing
The Department for Climate Protection announced the change to funding for e-mobility on Friday via radio broadcast. For regions currently in short supply of electronic charging stations, additional funding of €10 million is planned from January.
In total, financing e-mobility is expected to cost the country about 95 million euros in 2023. From the new year, companies will no longer receive subsidies for electric cars. The ministry justifies the move with the multiple tax exemptions that companies can already benefit from when purchasing electric cars.
In addition to promoting e-mobility, the intention is to create a separate funding stream for zero-emission commercial vehicles and infrastructure in 2023. 100 million euros are available for this.
Financing for e-cars and charging infrastructure remains the same
Nothing will change when it comes to subsidizing e-cars and the charging infrastructure for private homes. Electric vehicles will continue to be funded at 5,000 euros. The so-called wall boxes (private charging station) can be ordered for 600 euros, for communal systems it is 1,800 euros. The purchase of e-motorcycles is subsidized by 1,900 euros. There is up to €30,000 for operational freight infrastructure.
