Consumer groups call for more targeted purchase incentives for e-cars

January 06, 2022


Abstract : German consumer groups are calling for much more targeted purchase incentives for electric cars.

German consumer groups are calling for much more targeted purchase incentives for electric cars. "I would encourage the German government to make a clear-cut choice here," the head of the German consumer association (vzbv), Klaus Müller, told dpa. "You don't have to subsidize every luxury car from the government, even if it's an electric car." Purchase premiums should now only be available for e-vehicles with list prices below 40,000 euros - until now, there has been an upper limit of 65,000 euros for the basic model.

"We urgently need a functioning used car market for electric cars," Müller explained. "And that should be primarily the smaller and medium-sized cars." This, he said, is what many who cannot or do not want to buy a new car rely on. However, the condition of the batteries is an important point here with regard to possible follow-up costs, according to a vzbv position paper.

Müller emphasized, "One should only promote those electric cars that really have a demonstrable environmental effect." He was referring in particular to the hybrid models with combined drives, which are fueled less with electrical and more with classic fossil energies. Germany's new federal government of the Social Democrats (SPD), Free Democrats (FDP), and Greens has announced a realignment of e-car subsidies from 2023. The existing purchase incentives were recently extended until the end of 2022.
