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

Last update 08.04.2019

In order to encourage private citizens to opt for electro-mobility and active mobility, thereby rendering mobility cleaner and more sustainable in the long run, a new subsidy is now available for the purchase of a new, fully electric motor vehicle (e.g. car, van, quad):

  • 100% electric;
  • with a hydrogen fuel cell; or
  • a plug-in hybrid motor vehicle (including vans) with CO2 emissions ≤ 50 g/km;

Who is concerned

The subsidy is eligible to the owners or holders of a vehicle that is registered in Luxembourg, 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 indicated on the registration certificate of the vehicle 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 if:

  • they are the holder of the vehicle in the context of a leasing contract. 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 deadlines: 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.


The subsidy is available for vehicles:

  • registered in Luxembourg for the first time between 1 January and 31 December 2019 included, and;
  • which have not been previously registered abroad.

Applicants for the aid must have registered the vehicle in their name no later than 6 months after the first registration of the vehicle.


Applicants can submit their application for the subsidy:

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