Purchase Subsidies

Greece - Purchase Subsidies

Greece’s e-Mobility subsidy programme announced in June 2020 is now becoming concrete: On 24 August 2020 a platform will be launched online where subsidies can be applied for.

Subsidies will be available for electric vehicles (M1 and N1) purchased from 7 August 2020 onwards with up to 6,000 euros per vehicle, but only up to a list price of 50,000 euros. “Up to 6,000 euros” is an important formulation here: 20 per cent will be subsidised up to a purchase price of 30,000 euros, and 15 per cent for vehicles with a price of up to 50,000 euros. This amounts to 6,000 euros for the respective maximum sum, but the subsidy is somewhat lower for a lower price. An additional €1,000 is available for scrapping an old combustion engine and 500 euros for installing a charging station. 
Used cars are excluded from the promotion.
Taxis are being subsidized 25%, up to a limit of 10,000 eur.

The subsidy programme runs until the end of 2021 with a budget of 100 million euros. Development Minister Kostis Hatzidakis estimated that upon completion, on 31 December 2021, the program will have subsidised 15,000 private cars and taxis and 12,500 motorcycles and bicycles, thereby benefiting some 27,500 people. The government has already made plans to provide additional funds from the EU reconstruction fund “Next Generation EU”, should the first budget be prematurely exhausted.

In line with the announced e-Mobility subsidy programme, starting from 7 August 2020 and ending in 2021, one can apply for a subsidy of 500 euros for installing a charging station. 

The Greek energy supplier PPC, together with private companies, is to install 1,000 charging stations throughout Greece in the next two to three years, and in the medium term another 10,000 charging stations.

Announced policy changes

Greece - Announdec policy changes

"The goal is for one in three new vehicles in Greece to be electric in 2030 as the country introduces buying premiums as well as charging infrastructure advances. In the first phase, Greece holds a 100-million-euro budget for purchase premiums over a period of 18 months."
