No less than 71 million euros was set aside by the government to stimulate the sale of electric cars. In addition, another 20.4 million euros was made available to also give the market in second-hand EVs a boost. It was possible to apply for these subsidies since Monday 3 January 9:00 am. Later that day, at 4:45 PM, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) announced that 10.4 million euros for new and 1.8 million euros for used EVs have already been allocated.
No less than 3,350 euros in subsidy will be given to anyone who buys or leases a new electric car in 2022. If you opt for a used EV, you can claim 2,000 euros in subsidy. The figures from the RVO therefore show that 3113 people applied for a subsidy for a new electric car, and 903 people for a used one.

Have you just parked a new EV in your driveway, or ordered one? Then we recommend that you err on the side of caution and go quickly to the RVO website. If the pot is used up, you will receive nothing at all.
