Suddenly, the German purchase subsidy for electric cars was stopped on December 17, 2023. Various manufacturers do not want to let their customers down and are stepping into the breach.
Due to the sudden cancellation of the purchase subsidy by the German government, many EV buyers were left with a penalty of 4,500 euros. Especially for customers who had already ordered an electric car, a particularly sour apple to bite through.
The German car industry also understands this. To make the holidays a pleasant experience for their customers, a number of brands are temporarily covering the subsidy.
For example, the Stellantis group guarantees the Environmental bonus for its electric cars according to existing guidelines. The condition is that they are registered before December 31, 2023. This applies to cars of the brands Abarth, Citroën, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Jeep, Opel in Peugeot registered before December 31, 2023.

For cars already ordered that were registered before February 29, 2024, Stellantis uses the premium that would have applied after New Year's Eve as an additional discount. Then we are still talking about 3000 euros. Furthermore, buyers and private leasers of EVs with a list price above 45,000 euros would no longer receive a subsidy at all as of January 1, 2024.
Other brands such as Hyundai, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Smart, Tesla, Toyota and Volkswagen also continue to offer bonuses or compensatory discounts under various conditions. Manufacturers often still take over their share of the environmental subsidy for orders until December 31, 2023. Kia had already indicated in November that it would compensate its customers until December 31 if necessary.
