Current subsidies in e-mobility

What are the subsidies for wallboxes and in e-mobility?

We always try to keep our answer to this question as up to date as possible. From the subsidisation of commercial charging stations to the private installation of wallboxes. However, what is important in every case: Submit the application first, then buy a charging station or wallbox. The same is true of premiums which are issued for electric cars and plug-in hybrids. Of course the situation can change at any time. Therefore, please understand that we cannot assume any liability for the information below. However, we make every effort to always be up to date – you should too: This will take you to our newsletter.

Current subsidies

In Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

  1. KfW Subsidy 439 – unfortunately no longer available
    Within the framework of this funding, municipalities and districts, their legally dependent own enterprises and municipal special-purpose associations are granted a subsidy of up to 900 euros per charging point. The minimum grant amount is 9,000 euros. At the same time, at least 10 charging points must be installed. More information here.
  2. KfW Subsidy 440 – unfortunately no longer available
    The programme “Charging stations for electric cars – residential building [Subsidy 440]” subsidised charging stations or wallboxes that were only used privately. Both the purchase of a wallbox and its installation and connection were subsidised. Despite a reinforcement of the funds by an additional 300 million euros in July 2021, this subsidy has been completely exhausted. No more applications are being accepted.
  3. KfW Subsidy 441 – unfortunately no longer available
    The German Federal Ministry of Transport is subsidising the development of a charging infrastructure for commercial parking facilities and e-charging stations on company premises with a maximum grant of 45,000 euros per company location. This includes a grant of up to 900 euros per charging point/charging station. You can find more information here.
  4. Subsidies from the individual federal states
    Here is an excerpt from the subsidy programmes of the individual federal states and/or cities. However, at the moment these funding pools are being exhausted quickly or the subsidy has already stopped. Therefore, we can only provide an initial idea, and cannot always describe the possibilities completely. The best thing is to enquire on the respective pages yourself.
  5. Baden Württemberg: BW-e-Solar voucher
    As a “green state”, Baden-Württemberg is a pioneer in terms of e-mobility. Here this is a subsidy programme from L-Bank (State Bank of Baden-Württemberg). The only requirement: You must install a photovoltaic system for autonomous power supply or already have one. Then there are grants of up to 1,000 euros for fully electric vehicles and a wallbox grant of up to 500 euros. More information here.

Bonuses for electric cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

In Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The environmental bonus for electric and hybrid vehicles is still available. As these vehicles are comparatively expensive, they are subsidised by the state and manufacturers. Our recommendation: Before purchasing a vehicle – particularly a plug-in hybrid – check if it is actually still eligible, as the situation is very volatile.

  1. Subsidisation of electric cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles – BAFA Subsidy Germany
    Buyers of purely electric vehicles will continue to receive a subsidy of up to 9,000 euros in 2022. Of this, the federal government is responsible for 6,000 euros. Plug-in hybrids receive a maximum subsidy of 6,750 euros. For the time being, the government share is still 4,500 euros. From 2023 the subsidies will be revised once again. It is possible that the premiums for plug-in hybrids will stop.
  2. Subsidisation of electric cars and plug-in hybrids – Austria
    Here the funds have been extended for 2022.
  3. Subsidisation of electric cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles – Switzerland
    On the national level, electric cars (not plug-in hybrids) are exempt from the automobile tax. However, more and more cantons are subsidising the purchase of energy-efficient cars by reducing the taxes on them. The criteria that need to be met in order to benefit from this vary. At the same time, there are numerous support programmes for vehicles and/or charging infrastructure for which either cantons, cities or municipalities are responsible. A list of links would go beyond the intended scope here.
