Car is in Flanders from January 1, no insurance premiums and more electric cars. That is, the government has today decided on. The contributions of shots and their point is to be heard at the office of the secretary of Energy, Zuhal Demir (N-VA).

If, on or before 31 december of an electric car is ordered, you can still enjoy the bonus of up to 4,000 euros. Electric cars, however, are only found in a minority of cases, individuals have been purchased. The 3.648-selling electric cars in 2018, in line 415 contributions being sought. The measure was not met, it is Friday and to hear from you.

However, this year there will be more contributions being sought. According to new figures from the previous Energieminister I have been Peeters (Open Vld), it was apparent that it was in the first half of the year was 593, compared to the 415 in the whole of 2018. There was a 2.2 million euro was paid out in the first half of the year.

Smith pointed out earlier this year, we are still on for the duration of your period, to achieve the target of 7.5 percent for electric vehicles by the end of 2020. The N-VA, however, was not a fan of the promotion. The former party leader Matthias Diependaele (N-VA) called it a gift, and decided to spend the money for premium, investing in more staff, such as charging infrastructure.

“change has only just begun”

Automobielfederatie, Febiac is the elimination of the premium, it’s an outrage. According to the organisation, the uptake of electric cars has only just begun and will continue to support measures necessary. “A lot of people are hesitant when it comes to an electric car to buy, because the charging infrastructure in Belgium is not at the right level is,” according to Luc Bontemps, managing director Febiac.

“these obstacles must be localized and the government has been working to dispel. A strong fiscal stimulus, which is today still indispensable.We can only regret the fact that the Flemish government has already decided that the premium will be the purpose you missed. It is, rather, another beginning. This measure of abolition, is to put a brake on the future of sustainable mobility solutions.”
Price decrease

The federation of electric mobility (Avere), the timing is very unfortunate, because there are now more affordable and smaller electric models on the market. “We’re going to an excessive electric cars need to klimaatambities to achieve,” says Avere chairman of the Jochen De Smet. “With the elimination of the premium for individuals after 2020, no incentive anymore for them to switch to an unhealthy petrol or diesel car to be a clean, zero-emissiewagen.”

The federation is hoping that the government released funds will be used to create a different way to get the price of electric cars will decrease.

Electric automobiles are a lot more expensive than a traditional car. A lot of people doubt it to electric, as the network of charging stations that must be removed from the system.
