In 2022, the climate bonus for many electric cars and plug-in hybrids will disappear

Many electric cars and plug-in hybrids will lose the right to a climate bonus in 2022. This is up to SEK 70,000 per car.

The bonus / malus system is intended to be self-financing, but more electric cars are sold than expected and the coffers are now empty. Therefore, the government has proposed that more cars should pay malus tax and that the dirtiest cars should pay more than before. These changes will apply from 1 June 2022.

The fact that luxury cars receive SEK 70,000 in subsidies from the state is somewhat obvious and therefore a stop is proposed for climate bonuses for electric cars and plug-in hybrids that cost SEK 700,000 or more according to the Swedish Tax Agency’s price list.

The price cap is intended to take effect on 1 July 2022. This means that a car that costs more than SEK 700.00 must be registered no later than 31 May to receive a bonus.

The company car expert Ronny Svensson at Ynnor AB believes that the many rapid changes in recent times and the problems of getting a climate bonus paid out affect companies.

– The government creates uncertainty, which means that companies postpone their car purchases.

2022 years money for climate bonus will soon run out according to Ronny Svensson’s calculation. This means that we will probably see long delays in the payment of climate bonuses again this year, as decisions on extra money must be made by the Riksdag.

– The system goes around 3 billion backwards per year.

Charging hybrids get reduced or no climate bonus

On 1 January, the climate bonus for plug-in hybrids will be reduced from a maximum of SEK 45,000 to SEK 20,000.

Cars that emit less than 60 grams of carbon dioxide per km are entitled to a climate bonus. June 1, 2022, the limit is lowered to 50 grams. Exactly how much CO2 a car emits depends on what options have been made, for example, wider tires can affect.

Some of the cars affected are:

Audi A8 TFSI e
Audi Q7 TFSI e
Ford Explorer PHEV
Mercedes GLE 350
Mercedes GLC Coupe
LandRover Defender P400e
