Non-profit organizations will continue to receive a government bonus when purchasing electric cars. The Federal Ministry of Economics announced today in Berlin. The federal government had agreed on a fundamental reform of the promotion of electric cars. According to this, buyers of battery-electric cars will receive less support from the state from next year. Subsidies for plug-in hybrid vehicles are scheduled to expire at the end of this year.
From September 1, 2023, funding will be limited to private individuals – companies will then get nothing. At the end of July, the Ministry of Economics announced that funding for small businesses and non-profit organizations was still being examined.
Important social role also in climate protection
Economics Minister Robert Habeck (Greens) now stated that non-profit organizations fulfill an important role in society as a whole, especially when it comes to climate protection. The amended funding guideline is due to come into force in the autumn after it has been reviewed by the European Commission. The subsidies for e-cars should expire by the end of 2024 at the latest.
