The call for applications is open; the projects that have received funding are in the process of implementation.
The grant will be provided for the purchase of new all-electric (including hydrogen fuel cell) passenger cars and light vans (categories M1 and N1), as well as electric cargo bikes, which can be acquired both under a sales contract or put into service under a leasing contract. The vehicle must be new, purchased and received no earlier than 6 February 2023 and, in the case of a car, registered first in the register of the Transport Administration in the name of the grant applicant. The grant can be applied for within two months of receiving possession of the vehicle. It became possible to submit applications from 27 February 2023.
We provide the grant to private and legal persons. The support is EUR 4,000 for an electric car, and up to 50% (but not more than EUR 1,000) of the price of a cargo bike. Income tax will be deducted from the grant amount of EUR 5,000 intended for private persons, so the grant amount for them will therefore be EUR 4,000.
The aim of the measure is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Estonia through the increased use of zero-emission vehicles in the transport sector and to promote the use of zero-emission vehicles.
Grants are awarded in Estonian and more information can be found on the EIC website here.
