Buyers of electric cars will receive RON 20,000 (EUR 4,500) vouchers and buyers of hybrids will benefit from a EUR 1,130 discount, after the Romanian government’s emergency ordinance which applies for both private and legal persons. Owners of electric vehicles were entitled to a deduction of EUR 2,700 until now. Government sources told Energynomics.ro portal that 100 vouchers for electric cars will be available, like in the 2013 programme.

The grant for hybrids applies for vehicles with external power supply which are certified to emit less than 50 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometre.

The Administration of the Environmental Fund (AFM) introduced a similar programme in 2013, when 100 so-called ecotichete were allocated for purchasing electric cars. The only applicant that has benefited from the subsidy to buy a car of this type was the Municipality of Moineşti in Bacău county. Last year the subsidy programme was not implemented.
