New aid for the acquisition of zero-emission heavy goods vehicles

Last update

A new financial aid has been made available for businesses wishing to convert their fleet of vehicles used for road freight transport to 'zero emission' of CO₂ vehicles.

The new medium and heavy duty trucks (categories N2 and N3) equipped with zero-emission engines, such as pure electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, are thus eligible for this aid.

The same applies to the costs of retrofitting a combustion engine vehicle to a zero-emission heavy duty vehicle.

The amount of aid, which varies according to the size of the company, is calculated on the basis of:

  • the extra cost, i.e. the difference between the cost of acquiring a zero-emission vehicle and the acquisition of an equivalent vehicle with internal combustion engine; or
  • the costs of retrofitting to a zero-emission vehicle.

The aid is limited to a maximum of EUR 300,000 per group.

Applications for aid must be submitted online via using a LuxTrust product (e.g. Token, Smartcard or Signing Stick) or an electronic identity card (eID).
