Government Incentives in Ireland to buy Electric/Hybrid vehicles

Carzone recently issued their 2018 Motoring report which highlighted that almost two thirds of car buyers in Ireland are now considering purchasing an electric or hybrid vehicle in the near future. This comes as the government are putting more and more support behind the move with over 3,500 electric vehicles already on the road. Now is the perfect time to purchase with several attractive government incentives in place for those considering an electric vehicle in Ireland. These include:

  • A VRT rebate of up to €5,000
  • SEAI Grant of up to €5,000 (worth €5,000 for Electric vehicles & €2,500 for plug-in hybrids)
  • SEAI grant of €600 for home charging point installation by the ESB
  • Toll savings of up to €500 per year.

It's worth noting that the home charging point grant is available for both new or used electric vehicles so you can still avail of this if you purchase second hand. In addition, if it's a company car you will benefit from 0% benefit in kind (BIK).
