Contrary to Robert Habeck's plans, Transport Minister Volker Wissing wants to increase the premium for electric cars significantly.

Will there soon be Stromer at a scooter price?

Berlin – Motorists who are toying with the idea of ​​a new electric car should be banging their heads: What is going on in Berlin?

Many of them had just come to terms with the fact that the environmental bonus for electric vehicles will probably be significantly reduced from 2023 (and completely abolished for plug-in hybrids).

At least that's what Federal Economics Minister Robert Habeck (52, Greens) is planning.

The expensive consequence for buyers: whose battery car can no longer be registered this year due to the absurdly long delivery times (some manufacturers guarantee this, however) will receive 2,000 euros less from the state than before – i.e. probably only up to 4,000 instead 6,000 euros (in addition to 3,570 euros gross manufacturer discount).

Many interested parties are therefore hesitant to make a purchase, or have already jumped off again.

But now Transport Minister Volker Wissing (52, FDP) is grappling with his cabinet colleague in the melting of the subsidy.

Because he supposedly not only wants to continue at the current level until 2027, but also to increase it significantly, as the "Handelsblatt" reports.

This is said to be in the draft for an immediate climate protection program (which would actually also be Habeck's territory).

According to this, buyers of all purely electrically powered cars up to a price of 40,000 euros, regardless of whether they have batteries or fuel waves, should receive 10,800 euros from the state.

Together with the manufacturer's share of the premium, that would be a deduction from the purchase price of 14,370 euros.

For more expensive Stromer up to 60,000 euros, there should still be 8,400 euros, so a total of 11,970 euros.

Electric car: FDP Minister Wissing wants mega premium - Dacia Spring for 6,570 euros?

For a Dacia Spring (list price from 20,940 euros) you would only have to spend 6,570 euros, less than for some (petrol-powered) scooters.

A BMW i4 (actually from 59,200 euros) would be available from 47,230 euros.

Whether the mega-premium really becomes law, or whether Habeck can still prevail, is currently considered completely open.

For prospective buyers who may want to switch to electric, this probably means: wait and see – and continue to drive combustion engines for the time being.
