The article “New government subsidy for electric cars” already mentioned the subsidy that private individuals receive when purchasing a (new) electric car (till 45.000 euros). In this article, you find an overview about the costs of the cars, and information about the conditions (2020-2025). There are several scenarios you can think of when purchasing a (new) electric car. Are you going to buy it immediately or are you going to lease it? Will you buy the car in 2020 or in 2025? All these choices influence the purchase price.
Purchase an EV directly with a subsidy
If you pay the whole amount directly for the electric car, then you will immediately receive the government subsidy. The car must be in possession for at least three years however. If you buy a new car within these three years, you will pay a part of the subsidy back, unless it is an electric car again, because then the subsidy will not change.
Leasing EV with subsidy
Other conditions apply for leasing than for a direct purchase. If you decide to lease an electric car, the government pays an amount of €83, – per month for a period of 48 months until the total of 4,000 euros is reached. In addition, you must own the car for at least four years. If the lease ends within four years, the subsidy will stop, this amount must be paid back in monthly terms.
