Applying for financial aid for the purchase of an electric or hybrid vehicle

In order to encourage private citizens to opt for electromobility and active mobility, thereby rendering transport cleaner in the long run, a subsidy is now available for the purchase of a new vehicle (e.g. car, van, quad) which must:

  • be pure electric;
  • have a hydrogen fuel cell; or
  • be a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (including vans) with CO2 emissions ≤ 50 g/km.

Who is concerned

All owners or holders of a vehicle registered in Luxembourg, regardless of whether they are:

  • natural persons;
  • legal persons established under private law;
  • residents or non-residents.

In case of a rental or leasing contract, the subsidy can be paid to the holder of the vehicle indicated on the registration certificate or on the contract, provided that:

  • the owner of the vehicle waives the subsidy;
  • the vehicle is registered in Luxembourg.

Non-residents can apply for this aid:

  • within the framework of a leasing contract: as the main holder of the vehicle. In that case, the owner of the vehicle as indicated on the registration certificate is the leasing company which has to be headquartered in Luxembourg;
  • with regard to the time frame: the applicant can have moved, and therefore not be a resident any more, between the date of first registration and that of the application for financial aid.

Prerequisites

The subsidy is granted for vehicles which have never been registered abroad and which are brought into service in Luxembourg for the first time:

  • between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2022 inclusive (for pure electric or hydrogen fuel cell vehicles);
  • between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2021 inclusive (for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles).
The registration of the vehicle in the applicant's name must occur no later than 6 months after the vehicle's first entry into service.

The date of the sales contract, or, in the case of leasing, of the rental or lease contract of the vehicle, must be no later than 31 March 2022 (pure electric or hydrogen fuel cell vehicle) or no later than 31 December 2021 (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle).

Deadlines

Applicants can submit their application for the subsidy:

  • at the earliest 7 months after the date of the vehicle registration in the applicant's name; and
  • at the latest 2 years after the first entry into service of the vehicle.

The 7-month period mentioned above does not apply when the applicant for financial aid is a natural person who owns the vehicle.

For rental vehicles without driver, the applicant can submit the application for the subsidy:

  • at the earliest 12 months after the date of the vehicle registration in the applicant's name; and
  • at the latest 2 years after the first entry into service of the vehicle.

Date of first registration in the name of the applicant + 7 (or 12) months = first possible date of application for the subsidy.
