Financial stimulation

Several tax benefits ensure that the number of electric vehicles in the Netherlands continues to grow in 2018.

The 2018 fiscal stimulus package is as followed:

  • Exemption from BPM (motor vehicle purchase tax) for full electric cars.

  • Exemption from MRB (motor vehicle road-use tax) for full electric cars (note: semi-electric cars with a CO2-emissions between 1 en 50 gram p/km will only have to pay half of the MRB).

  • 4 percent company-car addition to taxable income for people leasing BEVs.

  • A maximum MIA (environmental investment allowance) of 36 percent, to a maximum of €50,000.

Several regional authorities have their own financial incentives.
