Since the beginning of the year that the Government gives 3,000 euros of incentive for individuals who buy a 100% electric car.
The State is giving an incentive to the Portuguese who wish to invest in an electric vehicle, as published in Diário da República at the beginning of the month. According to the most recent data from the Environmental Fund, the Government has already received 611 applications for checks for automobiles and 156 for bicycles.
The state check gives an extra 3,000 euros to anyone who buys a 100% electric car – you can find more information on how to ask for this support in this article. In the case of electric bicycles, the support is 250 euros. These amounts are limited to one incentive per candidate.
Accompanied by the Ministry of the Environment and Energy Transition, the Environmental Fund is the body responsible for allocating checks and reveals that of the 611 applications submitted so far, only two were excluded.
What is the purpose of this benefit? “To continue the implementation of measures to accelerate the appropriation of alternative and more environmentally friendly traction energies, such as 100% electric traction, given its clear contribution to improving air quality, noise reduction and decarbonization,” read on the page of that Fund.
