Rome will subsidise up to 5,000 euros of the invest in selling price of new electric automobiles costing up to 35,000 euros excluding VAT.
That involves a 2,000 euro contribution connected to the scrappage of a polluting combustion-motor vehicle, the decree showed.
The order of plug-in hybrid electric motor vehicles costing up to 45,000 euros will be subsidised by up to 4,000 euros, whilst the approach also includes an incentive of 2,000 euros for point out-of-the artwork combustion-motor (Euro6) vehicles costing up to 35,000 euros when more mature motor vehicles are scrapped.
Money are also accessible for incentives to buy new bikes and for tiny- and medium-sized business enterprise to purchase entirely electrical vans, according to the decree.
