Announced by the Minister for Transport, Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, this aid dedicated to used electric vehicles will be accompanied by new measures to support the deployment of charging stations.
While the € 7,000 bonus granted for the purchase of an electric car is expected to rise to € 6,000 as of January 1, 2021, the government is planning new measures to support the development of electric vehicles in the poorest households. Announcing the creation of a bonus of 1000 euros in the overseas departments where “vehicles are more expensive than in Metropolitan France”, the Minister for Transport, Jean-Baptiste, Djebbari, announced the introduction of aid for used electric vehicles. “A bonus of 1,000 euros will be created, everywhere in the territory, without means test, for the purchase of a used 100% electric vehicle,” he said in an interview with the Parisian. If the minister has not detailed the implementation schedule, we imagine that the measure will be introduced from January 1, 2021.
At the same time, Jean-Baptiste, Djebbari proposes the establishment of a “microcredit mechanism with state guarantee”. Already one of the proposals of the citizens’ climate convention, it would be aimed at the most modest households. “Enough to establish real social equity for access to ecological cars” underlines the Minister for Transport.
New aid for charging stations
Beyond aid for the acquisition of vehicles, the state wishes to support the deployment of charging stations. This Monday, October 12 in the morning, the Minister for Transport and Barbara Pompili, Minister of Ecological Transition, will detail the “100,000 terminals” plan. A goal that the government wants to achieve by the end of 2021.
According to Jean Jean-Baptiste Djebbari, this will involve strengthening the aid already allocated by Advenir, a device piloted by Avere France and financed by the Energy Saving Certificates (EEC) mechanism. Now between 1000 and 2000 euros per terminal, the aid will now range from 2000 to 9000 euros depending on the power delivered.
At the same time, the government intends to put on the table an envelope of 100 million euros to deploy a national network of 500 fast-charging stations along highways and national roads. Each station will be equipped with “at least 4 charging stations with a power of 150 kW,” the minister said.
