In this way, the Federal Government wants to increase the attractiveness of new vehicles with electric and plug-in hybrid drive. Buyers of purely battery-operated cars in Germany receive 4,000 euros in support, while buyers of plug-in hybrids receive 3,000 euros. The highest premium for buying a BEV is currently granted in Romania: 10,000 euros, plus an additional premium of 1,500 euros for scrapping a car that is at least eight years old. Other countries – such as Norway – are strengthening electric mobility through the use of bus lanes, free charging points and exemption from vehicle registration tax, VAT (25%), luxury tax, registration fees for electric vehicles and parking and road charging fees in city centers.
