Sustainable mobility is becoming more popular as each year passes and, as occurs annually, there was huge great expectation when Plan Movea 2017 was set in motion, with financial aid to purchase or lease a vehicle powered by sustainable energy. Once again, all the forecasts proved correct. After a long wait, the subsidies were approved in June and made available as from August 8th, and in less than 24 hours all the aid approved for 2017 was allocated. This led to calls by the private sector and civil society for further aid to be made available.
In the end, Central Government decided to extend the aid granted under Plan Movea by 1.1 million euros and these funds will shortly be made available to meet the demand generated by all those who believe that sustainable mobility deserves a big boost.
Although this announcement has not yet been published on the official website, the information has been disclosed to the public through various different channels and the funds have been assigned as follows:
The subsidies will be limited to these amounts:
The subsidies will be available until October 15th or until they run out.
To apply for a subsidy under Plan Movea, you will need to have the following documents on hand:
If you hand over your old car when you purchase the new one, you must present a certificate registering it as being off the road, plus the car registration certificate, technical data sheet and receipt of payment of road tax.
If you receive over 3,000 euros in aid, you will have to submit a certificate from the Tax Authorities showing that you are up to date in the payment of all tax.
A photocopy of the invoice of the electric vehicle, dated on the same date or after the Royal Decree entered into force.
If it is a leased or rented vehicle, in addition to all the above documents, a copy of the contract (which must last for at least two years) will be needed, and the name of the lessee must be the same as the person applying for the subsidy.
We must also add that Plan Movea will continue to accept reservations for a subsidy. The aim of this extension is to provide aid for all those who made a reservation before and were not able to get a subsidy.
