SEAI is offering grants of up to €5,000 for a Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) or a Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) purchased & registered in Ireland. In addition, these vehicles also qualify for VRT relief of up to €5,000 for a BEV & €2,500 for a PHEV, providing a maximum combined subsidy (grant + VRT relief) of €10,000 for BEVs & €7,500 for PHEVs. Grants are accessed via the Dealer.
Electric Vehicles (EV) refer to both Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV). Ireland's target is to achieve 10% electric vehicle usage by 2020, which is equivalent to having 230,000 vehicles on the road.
In addition, ESB will be providing free connection points in the home of each of the first 2,000 vehicles purchased. By the end of 2013, ESB had installed 700 public AC charge points and 50 fast chargers. For more information on charging points visit https://www.esb.ie/our-businesses/ecars/ecars-overview
