The state billion grant triggers a rush to electric cars
Hauke-Christian Dittrich/dpa/archive picture More and more electric cars are allowed, but the charging infrastructure is still left to be desired.

More information the doubling of the electric car subsidies a year ago has a resounding effect on the German car market: In the past twelve months, far more than half a million vehicles with a purely electrical or plugin hybrid engine have been re-registered-more than in all previous years. The state-fueled boom emerges from the data of the Federal Motor Vehicle Office.Since then, the costs of the grants have also been rapidly set up: from the beginning of June 2020 to the end of June 2021, these add up to a good 1.9 billion euros, as announced for the payment of the grants.

Electric cars are no longer a niche product. A survey of the portal "Verivox" For potential car buyers between the ages of 18 and 69, 14.6 percent would like to buy an electric car next. 7.7 percent prefer a plugin hybrid, so together more than a fifth.

Approval for electric cars and plugin hybrids shot up overnight
The Federal Cabinet had retrospectively to 3 a year ago. June the "Innovation bonus" defined doubles of the purchase grants decided. The number of admission – and the associated expenses – rushed up overnight: from the beginning of June 2020 to the end of May 2021, over 567,000 electric cars were re -approved, in June almost 65,000 were added. For comparison: In the four years from 2016 to 2019 before, there were only 256,000 electric vehicles, before that even less. Hybrid engines without externally rechargeable battery are not counted.For the state treasury, the subsidies are associated with rapid rapid expenses: in the first half of 2020 "for switching to climate -friendly mobility" 77.6 million euros paid out to car buyers, as the BAFA reports. After doubling the subsidy, there were already 575 million in the second half of. This year it was 1.33 billion euros until the end of June. Purchase and leasing pure battery cars and plugin hybrids with rechargeable batteries are funded. Cars with fuel cell engine are also subsidized, but which are only approved in minimal quantities.
VW, Mercedes, BMW – especially German brands benefit
The higher grants should help the German auto industry on the one hand and, on the other hand, contribute to reducing CO2 emissions. Some experts and associations reject the high subsidies, including the Federation of Taxpayers.One point of criticism has not been true: that the grants would mainly benefit foreign manufacturers. This year there are four German car brands in the first four places for sales and plugin hybrid cars: VW was ahead with a good 59,000 cars in the first half of the year, followed by Mercedes, BMW and Audi. Renault was the first foreign manufacturer to be in fifth place. Also with the pure battery cars, Tesla was in second place behind VW.
Electric cars are particularly popular with private customers
According to the Verivox survey, private customers prefer pure electric cars, while plugin hybrids are preferred as a company car. "The market share of the pure electric vehicles is likely to continue to rise due to the customer interest in the coming months", said Wolfgang Schutz, managing director at "Verivox".The most common argument against an electric car is still the extensive range, which was mentioned by 46.7 percent of those surveyed. However, almost a third of the respondents believe that pure electric cars will gain most of the market shares over the next 10 years.
