Greek PM: Electromobility plan an emblematic initiative for the futureElectric cars will be free everywhere. For two years they will be exempt from parking fees. Expenses for charging electric cars will also be exempt from taxable income

"On this great day, World Environment Day, the Greek government is officially announcing an emblematic initiative for the future, according to ANA.

A policy that responds to the paucity of the past, but also to the justified concern of today. It is one of the main pillars of our environmental policy for giving up polluting fuels," Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis announced on Friday during the presentation of Greece's plan for promoting electromobility.

"Greece is preparing for the future. Despite the pandemic, we did not delay and today we are announcing the measures for low and zero pollution vehicles. We are also announcing the measures for electromobility and the necessary charging points," the prime minister noted, pointing out that the goal is for one in three new vehicles in Greece to be electric by 2030.

He noted that the first part of the plan includes specific financial incentives to support a switch to electric vehicles. "In the first phase, we are subsidizing the purchase of new type cars with 100 million euros for 18 months. It is estimated that this will cover 25 pct of the cost of about 14,000 new electric cars. The benefit per unit, if combined with the ecological bonus and the relevant tax exemptions, will approach 10,000 euros. Something that will make electric propulsion, new electric cars more affordable for the middle income," Mitsotakis said.

He added: "Fifty percent - and 70 pct on the islands - of the cost of buying or renting such a car will be deductible from corporate income. The same exemptions will apply for the cost of installing corporate charging points. The rate of depreciation of fixed assets in the companies that use electric or rechargeable hybrid vehicles will also be increased."
