Movalt has now come into force and applications for the first subsidies can be made from December 11th 2017 through to June 30th 2018. The Institute for Diversification & Energy Saving (Instituto para la Diversificación y Ahorro de la Energía or IDAE according to its acronym in Spanish) envisages purchases of some 5,600 vehicles thanks to this initiative, avoiding emissions of about 9,500 tons of CO2.

If you would like to have a sustainable vehicle or you have a company and want to install a charge point for customers, now it is much easier because a new series of Spanish State subsidies has just been approved worth 50 million euros. The Institute for Diversification and Energy Saving (IDAE), attached to the Spanish Ministry for Energy, Tourism and the Digital Agenda, has approved Movalt, not to be confused with Plan Movalt, the incentive programme by the Spanish Ministry for the Economy, Industry and Competitiveness which also facilitates the purchase of electric, hybrid, plug-in hybrid and gas-powered vehicles. The 50 million euros were contemplated in the General State Budget and they will be allocated as follows:
In addition to the above financial incentives, Movalt has also done away with some of the red tape that made it so costly and time-consuming to fit charge points:
Plan Movalt will soon be approved by IDAE and it is expected to enter into force in late 2017 or early 2018.
Here at LIVE in Barcelona, we will listen out for the announcement.
Update on 13/11/2017:
Plan Movalt, the final name of the incentive plan, will provide subsidies of between 500 and 18,000 euros for the purchase of a sustainable vehicle.
Applications can be made for a subsidy for the purchase of a fully electric, plug-in hybrid, fuel cell, autogas and natural gas-powered vehicle.
Hybrids that are not plug-ins are excluded from this plan.
