France Preparing €10,000 In Aid To Switch From Diesel To Electric
Marie-Ségolène Royal, Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy in France, proposed at the end of July the final version of a bill, which seems to be generous for EVs.
The idea is to encourage the purchase of electric vehicles by exchanging a €10,000 bonus in lieu of the current environmental bonus of €6,300.
We feel this may make the market will explode. However, to get €10,000, the new EV must replace a diesel model.
It seems that France would like to fight with Norway to be the EV leader of the world. However, we are not sure if France will be able to bear such incentives over the longer term. Anyways, we are awaiting to see if this bill will pass or not.
