France Launches €10,000 Bonus To Switch From Diesel To Electric
France is moving forward with a plan to up incentives to buy electric cars from €6,300 for BEVs and €4,000 for PHEVs to €10,000 and €6,500 respectively.
To get the additional €3,700 or €2,500 you need to currently own a 13-year old (or older) diesel car, which will be scraped upon trading it in for electric.
€10,000 is today some $11,300, which for sure will launch EV sales to the next level. At least from April 1, when the new program will be implemented.
Those who scrap old diesel for new diesel (Euro 6 class of vehicle emitting less than 110 g / CO2) will get just €500.
