The Governing Council adopted a draft Grand-Ducal regulation extending the ‘Clever fueren’ financial aid scheme until March 31, 2022, while providing for a more targeted allocation of bonuses. Towards zero CO2 emissions mobility and active mobility, the regime will continue to promote pure electric motor vehicles, with hydrogen fuel cells and so-called plug-in hybrid vehicles, as well as bicycles and pedal-assisted cycles.
The financial assistance of 8,000 euros, introduced under the "Neistart Lëtzebuerg" program, will be maintained for 100% electric cars whose electric energy consumption does not exceed 18 kWh / 100 km. For more fuel-consuming / less energy-efficient cars, whose electrical energy consumption exceeds the aforementioned threshold, the amount of the premium is limited to 3,000 euros.
In order to take into account the needs of large families, a premium of 8,000 euros will be allocated for cars with 7 or more seats regardless of their electrical energy consumption, provided that the applicant for the assistance is part of a household of at least 5 people.
For 100% electric vans, the amount of the premium remains unchanged at 8,000 euros. This rule applies for hydrogen fuel cell cars and vans as well.
These new provisions will apply to vehicles ordered between April 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022, where the first entry into service takes place before the end of 2022, in order to take into account for delivery times.
