Spain to relaunch grants for alternative fuel vehicles

October 13, 2016

The Spanish government will relaunch a fund to support the sale of alternative fuel vehicles in 2017. Plan MOVEA helps with the purchase of electric and gas-powered cars, electric motorcycles and power-assisted bicycles as part of an environmental programme that runs until 2020. The final terms of the €16.6 million MOVEA scheme are being finalised but Tribuna de Automoción says there are minor changes. From 2017, companies can apply to the government for a reduced €4,000 grant, down from €5,500, with a maximum allocation for each business of €200,000 over three years. Private buyers can apply for an unchanged grant of €5,500. There will also be a reduction in the level of funds reserved for infrastructure developments, such as charging points, because it was not all allocated in the 2016 programme.
