Apply for support for electrically powered vehicles (environmental bonus)

Description

The sale of new electric vehicles is supported with an environmental bonus.

An environmental bonus of EUR 4,000 is granted to you for the purchase of

  • of a purely electrically operated vehicle,
  • of a fuel cell vehicle, or
  • of another vehicle that does not cause local CO2 emissions while driving

An environmental bonus of EUR 3,000 is granted to you for the purchase of

  • a externally rechargeable hybrid electric vehicle (plug-in hybrid),
  • vehicle that produces less than 50 g of CO2 emissions per km.

The environmental bonus is intended to promote the acceptance of electromobility. Half of it is provided by the Federal Government and industry. This performance information only covers the federal share of the environmental bonus.

The federal share of the environmental bonus is funded in a two-stage procedure.

1st stage (application)

  • Please submit your application electronically using the online form above on the portal of the Federal Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control.
  • When submitting your application, you must upload the purchase or leasing contract or the binding order for the vehicle on the online portal.
  • After examining the application, you will receive a grant notice.

2nd stage (proof of use)

  • You must then electronically prove that the vehicle has been used in accordance with the requirements of the Conveyor Directive.
  • To do this, you must upload the invoice and proof of vehicle registration (registration certificate Parts I and II) to the online portal of the Federal Office.
  • The new vehicle must be registered no later than nine months after receipt of the grant notice.
  • A maximum of 10 months may elapse between receipt of the grant notice and receipt of the proof of use by the BAFA.
  • After a positive audit by the Federal Office, the federal share of the environmental bonus will be paid to the account you have specified.

All further details on the procedure can be found in the Funding Directive.
