Ireland to Offer €5,000 Grant to Electric Car Drivers
Ireland has moved a step closer to making widespread electric vehicles a reality, announcing generous subsidies for buyers.
Consumers who purchase an electric vehicle will be eligible for a €5,000 grant and exempted from vehicle registration tax. The grants are similar to those already in place in the US, which can be as much as $12,000 (€8,800), taking into consideration both federal and state subsidies available in areas such as California.
"The Programme for Government announced our intention to transform the Irish energy and transport sectors. We have made great strides in renewable energy, energy efficiency and now we begin the electrification of our transport fleet," said Eamon Ryan, the Irish Government's Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources.
