Grants and Tax Relief Incentives
There is a €600 grant available from
the SEAI for electric car owners to
help cover the purchase and
installation of home charger systems.
In addition there is currently another SEAI grant available of up to €5000 towards the cost of buying an electric car . (For commercial vehicles the maximum grant is €3800.) The maximum grant of €5000 is payable on approved vehicles priced at €20,000 or more. Smaller grants are payable on lower value vehicles. Vehicles priced lower than €14000 do not qualify for a grant.
Only new vehicles bought from an approved dealer can qualify for the grant. There are about 110 approved dealers and they handle the grant applications and deduct the grant from the price of the car.
Toll Charges – since July 2018 there is now a discount scheme for electric vehicles with as much as 75% off toll tag charges on the M50 for example.
