You can apply for aid for the purchase of a car

At the extraordinary Council of Ministers held today, Friday, July 3, the Government approved the Renove 2020 Plan, destined to car purchase aids and other vehicles and that consider incentives between 4,000 and 400 euros in the case of private buyers.

Finally endowed with a budget of 250 million euros, this aid plan is framed within the automotive boost strategy of the Executive, a sector hit hard by the coronavirus crisis, and is parallel to the Plan MOVES 2020, whose incentives are exclusively for electric, hydrogen models and plug-in hybrids.

However, in addition to electric and PHEV, the new Renove also includes models efficient gasoline or diesel (label C), as well as hybrids or gas cars (LPG / Natural Gas). Furthermore, unlike MOVES, this incentive plan requires scrap a car old vehicle.

It must be borne in mind that both plans are incompatible for the same vehicle: whoever requests the Renove incentives will not be able to join those of MOVES 2020 and vice versa.

Who can apply for the aid?


Although it has not been approved until today, the aid application has retroactive from June 16, at which time the plan was announced, as well as its characteristics and requirements. That is, whoever has bought a car since that date can enjoy the incentives.

The Renove plan is focused on private and self-employed buyers (which have the same grants), as well as SMEs and large companies.

How should the car be?

This purchase incentive plan only includes aid for vehicles with energy classification A or B. According to the Government, these make up 45% of the current supply of vehicles.
