Current subsidies in e-mobility

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

We always try to answer this question in an up-to-date manner. From subsidies for commercial charging stations to the private installation of wallboxes. But what is important in any case: First apply, then buy a charging station or wallbox. The same applies to premiums offered 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 following information. However, we try to stay up to date - and so should you: Click here to subscribe to our newsletter.

Current subsidies

In Germany, Austria and Switzerland

  1. KfW subsidy 439 - unfortunately no longer available
    Under this subsidy, municipalities and districts, their legally dependent proprietary companies and municipal special-purpose associations were subsidized with up to 900 euros per charging point. The minimum grant amount was 9,000 euros. At the same time, at least 10 charging points had to be installed. More information here.
  2. KfW grant 440 - unfortunately no longer available
    The "Charging stations for electric cars - residential buildings [grant 440]" program provided funding for charging stations or wallboxes that were used exclusively for private purposes. Both the purchase of a wallbox and its installation and connection were subsidized. Despite the increase in funding in July 2021 by an additional 300 million euros, this funding has been completely exhausted. Applications are no longer being accepted.
  3. KfW grant 441 - unfortunately no longer available
    The German Federal Ministry of Transport supported the development of a charging infrastructure for commercial parking spaces and e-charging stations on company premises with a maximum grant of 45,000 euros per company location. Among other things, there was a grant of up to 900 euros per charging point/station. More information is available here.
  4. Subsidies of the individual federal states
    Here is an excerpt of subsidy programs of the individual federal states and/or cities. However, these funding pots are currently quickly exhausted or the funding already stopped. Therefore we can give only a first idea to the hand and do not represent the possibilities constantly completely. So it is best to find out for yourself on the respective pages.
  5. Baden-Württemberg: BW-e-Solar voucher
    As a "green state," Baden-Württemberg is a pioneer when it comes to e-mobility. Here, there is a subsidy program of the L-Bank (Staatsbank Baden-Württemberg). The only prerequisite: one must install or already own a photovoltaic system for self-sufficient power supply. Then there are grants of up to 1,000 euros for fully electric electric vehicles and a wallbox grant of up to 500 euros. More info here.

Premiums for e-cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

In Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The environmental bonus for electric and hybrid vehicles still exists. Since these vehicles are comparatively expensive, the state and manufacturers subsidize them. Our recommendation: Before purchasing a vehicle - especially a plug-in hybrid - check whether it is actually still eligible for subsidies, as the situation is very volatile. 

  1. Subsidy for e-cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles - BAFA subsidy Germany
    Buyers of purely electrically powered vehicles will continue to receive up to 9,000 euros in subsidies in 2022. The federal government will cover 6,000 euros of this amount. Plug-in hybrids will receive a maximum subsidy of 6,750 euros. The government's share will remain at 4,500 euros for the time being. The subsidies will be revised again from 2023. The premiums for plug-in hybrids may then be discontinued. The subsidy application can be submitted here.
  2. Subsidy for e-cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles - Austria
    The funds for 2022 have been extended here. You can find more information here.
  3. Subsidizing e-cars and plug-in hybrids - Switzerland
    At the national level, electric cars (not plug-in hybrids) are exempt from automobile tax. However, more and more cantons also subsidize the purchase of energy-efficient cars by granting them tax relief. The criteria to be met in order to benefit from this vary. At the same time, there are numerous subsidy programs for vehicles and/or charging infrastructures, for which either the canton, city or municipality is responsible. A list of the links would go beyond the scope here.
